Born in Cape Town, I moved to London as a teenager. I studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University followed by Art at Central St. Martins in London.

With my husband Ralph Lazar, I packed in my ‘proper job’ and moved to the Seychelles in 1999, where we set up, a graphic art licensing company. Back in London in 2003, an architect friend gave me a chewed-up miniature figurine, who I carefully placed in a wooden box. The Glass Cathedrals concept was born.

Since 2010 we have lived in Marin, a half hour north of San Francisco.

Some other work stuff I’ve been up to lately:
Published Happiness is… books, stationery and products with
Chronicle Books based on our popular Facebook page.
Started Bread and Jam, a little girls’ clothing line with my best
friend Sof, as an excuse to dress our daughters in pretty frocks.
