1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?

I am from one of the most isolated capital cities in the world Perth, Australia. Only since moving to the other side of the planet have I realised how isolated Perth is. I currently reside in Berlin.

1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?

I am originally from France. I was raised in the Loire Valley near Le Mans, famous for the Le Mans 24 Hour Race. It is not far from Alençon in Normandy, a town known for its intricate lace: le point d’Alençon. [This feature is sponsored by the French expats’ tourist board. ;-)] I came to work in England in 1996, first in a small town near Bristol, then in London. I have been working while studying Fine Arts: I am a part-time librarian and I recently completed a research project at the Royal College of Art. I often feel stuck here in London, but I guess these are not the best economic times to leave the city. Rotterdam is my preferred location: it oozes with down-to-earth creative energy. There, over the last 4 years, I have learned how to hand process and print my own film footage (mainly 16 mm). I am a film buff.

1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?

I was born and raised in Miami, Fl. Currently, I live minutes away from Downtown Miami in a very progressive neighborhood, called Morningside. It is filled with lots of art, design, culture, food and fashion. It’s a fun place to be.

1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?

I live in Perth, Western Australia. Perth is a small city, and probably the most isolated capital city in the world! The term “only 6 degrees of separation” is so very true for Perth-ies. Both my husband and myself were born here, as well as all our three children.

1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?

I was born in Hong Kong but have lived most of my life in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. There are a lot of young crafters in this city and a variety of venues (markets, craft fairs, independent businesses) that sell handmade goods. I really appreciate the DIY spirit here, especially having come from a highly commercial culture like Hong Kong’s.

1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?

I’m from a small town in the southwestern portion of Utah called Cedar City. It’s one of those places where you don’t have to lock your doors at night and you know nearly everyone who lives there. It was a dream growing up there. I moved to Salt Lake City, Utah when I started college and that’s where I live now.

1. Where are you from and/or where do you live?

I am from Geneva, Switzerland. I also lived in Lausanne. About 2 1/2 years ago my husband and I decided to live abroad for some time. We first moved to Bermuda, a tiny island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. We lived there for about a year and a half. We then traveled in the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia for 8 months, before finally settling in New Zealand. We currently live in Wellington, New Zealand.
