The first piece of 2021. I’m calling it Coco after my uncle Eric who is known as ‘Coco’ (nut, not Chanel.) He’s the ultimate island hopper - designing and building his own boats for the purpose and exploring the tiny, uninhabited by humans, paradisaical islands of the pacific. His eyes are so blue they appear to reflect the sunshine on crystalline island shallows back at you and under the dark tan and rogue beard combed by the sea air, his face is kind, clever, unpretentious. A little bit boy-who-never-grew-up and a little bit Robinson Crusoe.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Perhaps the most charming thing is that quite unexpectedly, Shiloh’s intrepid exploring of the house (and subsequent awkward knocks to the head at times as he runs into things) has earned him the nickname Coco as well. Another Coco in the next generation. I can’t think of a more gentle-yet-wild-in-equal-measure name - so it seemed right to name this island piece after Coco (and it’s a bit shorter than ‘Uncle Eric the Island Hopper.’)




We need to keep summer close. Not the part with the flies and the sunburn and the sand in your togs, but the heart of summer - that effervescent spark of life and hope that we feel at the start of the New Year. This is a mindful piece - a reminder to reflect and recapture the spirit of summer amidst the every day, to let ourselves be infused with energy and excitement in our spirit even if we feel a little weary in our bones. This piece is perfect for seekers of joy in the every day. Art for lovers of summer, of wild places, for those who get away to windswept shores and for those who dream of such freedom, for the sun seekers, the mango eaters, the lychee peelers. Art for homes that tell the story of our hopes and dreams, not just empty coffee cups and unfolded laundry.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
