So it's over. Today I walked away from my last ever radiotherapy session, back down the same corridors that 5 months ago I dragged myself through after being diagnosed with breast cancer. This time I looked up instead of staring at the floor, this time I smiled instead of crying, this time I am cancer free.
I just wanted to say that after what I have been through, to anyone on the starting...

Oh my goodness ..... 'Wonderland' just hit the number 1 bestseller on Amazon for Photo Essay Books, AND Fashion Design !!!!!! It's beating the Chanel book ! I can't believe it !
I'm just amazed that this film is still showing no signs of slowing down. My dear friends at My Modern Met first shared this earlier last year and it's now hit 4.4 million views after another surge of interest in the past week. I even found myself playing it to a group of antique dealers in a freezing farm barn full of old church furniture on Monday, in an attempt to explain who I was and what...

Tonight I let go of the hardest year of my life. It has been a paradox of both joy and fear that has taken me beyond the boundaries of anything I had previously imagined being capable of. I became a mother for the first time and was diagnosed with breast cancer all whilst redesigning and producing the 2nd edition of the Wonderland book. It has been a test I honestly don’t know how I’ve...

Day 1 done! 19 more to go.....
As some of you know I have been going through a very difficult time recently. It has taken forever, but I have finally written it all down. I hope that in reading my story it may help other women, whether it is you, your mother, sister or girlfriend and maybe inspire others to push for second opinions and further tests. Despite being told by 4 doctors my lump was benign, I insisted on a biopsy...

Remember I said something magical was coming soon? Well.......... Cinematographer Devin Schiro was out filming on location yesterday breathing life into the Wonderland book. Here's a little teaser screen shot of what was happening deep in the woods. To say I'm excited is possibly the understatement of the century :D

Today I'm leaving my studio. I've packed up endless props, test prints, and costumes dusted with powder paint and mud. I arrived at this place with nothing, after I'd given up my career as a fashion designer to follow my dreams and see if I could survive as an independent artist. It's been emotional digging back through all this stuff - the first magazines the pictures were ever featured in,...

Today I shipped number 17 out of the 25 very special bronze key Collector's Edition Wonderland Books. These pieces have always remained proof to myself that we should never compromise or give up on a dream. Four years ago a very famous publisher actually laughed at me in a meeting when I told them about my plans for the bronze key. They said no one would ever invest in such a high end book and...

First tiny glimpse at the new 2nd Edition of the Wonderland Book <3 It feels so worth all the hours it took for me to design the new cover whilst juggling my little son, it nearly tipped me over the edge during the process! The gold foil really glimmers, but is sadly so hard to capture on camera.Thank you for all the excited messages coming in from everyone receiving their books over the last few days I've really enjoyed reading them xx For those of you yet to receive your books, the final delivery of the pre-orders are leaving today, so you will have your packages shortly :) . I'll be posting proper pictures of the cover and the inside very soon as well as information about the general release date for those of you who missed the pre-order deadline. The Wall Street Journal has already requested a copy to review!
Finally for those of you asking about dust jackets for 1st editions, I'm waiting on delivery dates from the factory. I'm hoping to get them as quickly as possible. I'll post information on here as soon as I know more details x
This week it will have been 8 years since I lost my mother. The passing of time and seasons was something that had always underpinned the narrative of the Wonderland series and always given me the hope that I could move on when I was struggling. Over the last two months I've spent time walking in the woods trying to calm myself down and deal with what has been happening with my own health, and...
