Artist's Brunch

I had such a lovely time yesterday at a brunch with some artist friends.  This wonderful couple lives in the country side of  Tewksbury, NJ surrounded by hills and valleys with a view to die for! Their home is an old stable and corn crib which was converted into a living space full of whimsy and warmth.They are a couple of peace loving people, a bit eccentric and colorful with a wealth of knowledge of the world, life and art.  Mai is from a well established family in New Jersey and Peter from England. The pair paint together and travel to England every year for inspiration. Mai- Pronounced" MAY-I ", grew up surrounded by art as her mother was a wonderful painter and the two also dabbled in fabulous paper-mache pieces as well.  If you follow me on Instagram you have seen some of Mai 's work but for those who haven't I thought fitting to do a post and share.  It certainly makes me want to pull out the old new papers and wall paper paste and give it a go.   Enjoy!


  1. Oh it looks so beautiful! I've been plotting a barn turned house for a long time (with no actual action), so I love this. What incredible talent!
