about denise…

The vibrant tension between old and new items alongside each other and the surprise of traditional in a cOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAontemporary and unexpected makes me happy. I delight in filling life with creations that I make and objects found in obvious and sometimes obscure places.   I trained as a Home Economist,  have worked in journalism and interior design and owned an eclectic coffee shop.

I am an ENFP, have raised 3 amazing children, been a wife to a very supportive husband and have spent many hours refurbishing, re-inventing, recycling and creating.

thanks for visiting 🙂
