My Story

My Story

Born in Cape Town, I moved to London as a teenager. I studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University, followed by an art foundation course in London at Central St. Martins. This detour led me on to a very different life path, one I could never have dreamed possible.

In 1999, with my artist husband Ralph Lazar, I packed in my ‘proper job’ and moved to the Seychelles for a year. There we worked on projects that became our creative studio Last Lemon, which is still going strong today.

Then one day in 2004 (back in London), I placed a chewed-up architect’s model inside a wooden
Ikea box and something magical happened – life was breathed into that little guy and the space
in the box opened up to infinity. I had created an entire parallel universe! Godlike. And the
Glass Cathedrals concept was born.

After building my art business in London – organising art shows with Ralph and being
represented by some amazing small galleries on the art fair circuit – in 2010 I moved
with my family to San Anselmo, California. Gorgeous Marin was home for 12 years and
Glass Cathedrals continued to flourish. Since 2022 I’ve been back in brilliant London,
with regular pilgrimages to Southern Africa, land of my heart.
