New beginnings

So the French Muse is undergoing a little bit of an evolution.

When I launched the French Muse in 2015 it was to share beautiful, authentic experiences in Provence and I was so thrilled when my friend Corey Amaro wanted to collaborate, bringing her incomparable brocante knowledge, her wonderful cooking, and most importantly companionship. She has taught me so much these last few years and the French Muse has brought the most amazing people into my life and I am eternally grateful!


After many great French Muse retreats, Corey will go on to manage her own personal private buying trips. If you wish to book a private buying trip with Corey you can drop her a mail at:

The French Muse will be bringing on new team members and exciting new collaborations in  2019.

At it's core, The French Muse has always been about bringing guests deep into the soul of this beautiful country, soaking up the history, the colour and light; and of course meeting and connecting with its finest artisans, makers and collectors.

Those who you have read my blog since the beginning will know that I absolutely LOVE to support and share the work of makers and artists who inspire me and I did so here with my 'Les Petits Bonheurs' blog series. In January of this year, I joined the team at Where Women Create as their European contributor and I am so proud to share with you my favourite French Muse creative heroines.

Every time I get to spend a day documenting these female artists and makers is a gift. Having this opportunity to grow as a photographer and most importantly share the work of my heroes and closest female friends is the most wonderful surprise of 2018.

I hope you will continue to follow me on this adventure! Much love,
