WE LOVE our new house and living in Seaforth, Nova Scotia! We pinch each other every single day and say how grateful we are to everyone who helped us along this journey and we are super grateful to land here at this age and stage in our life...thank you!

Jim and I drove across Canada from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic coast to initiate a new way of life. Its been so far a transforming phase not only in our health but influencing what we are creating in our work. Once we where Nova Scotia bound, we had ONE major intention and that was to embark on a full time creative journey while also improving our health while making art & music. 

Jim and I came to find a rural area and a gorgeous piece of land to design and build our own custom groovy little beach shack & art studio in 2011. 

Read more here... Building a house in itself was a massive creative learning curve but fortunately, we had talented local builders who did honest work and were apart of the whole design in the process.

Our life-changing move to Nova Scotia in 2010 from Vancouver Canada, separated us from family and friends but only in miles and not from our hearts! Read more here...

Jim is the musician and I am the artist and while the two of us need different circumstances to further our creative journeys, the one thing we share is the love for each other and an awesome spot on the earth where we park our stuff.

We now have time to share our home with a DOG who needs LOTS of attention, pets, & walks.  Three Years ago, a tenacious terrier found his way to us and now our life is fur blessed by an energized, spark plug, silky terrier, named Ziggy. He had a few shaky starts in his first 4 years before us but has WON out with us peeps who are devoted to being his SLAVES to his WAYS!!

Jim has managed to collaborate & coordinate the last couple of years with some very talented fellow musicians & singers, both in L.A. and in Nova Scotia. He writes music every day and once it all starts to click, he is off to Ross Billard's music studio in Halifax to record his latest songs.  His idea for music collaboration is to showcase various styles of music and talents. A goal this year to achieve is for Laughing Buffalo: The Music Well, to have its own online site where it will feature all the music collaborations.

This year I had two technological mishaps that lost many files and photos. My external hard drive blew a spring the same week my laptop died. The sour in this bad lemonade got me into the FLOW to better organize what's left of my saved files. This spun me into a technological tornado with many learning curves along the way. I hope to plateau soon with all this internet stuff and get back to art making.

I wish everyone a wonderful year filled with discovery, humour, and love! Celebrate the New Year by taking a gander at some of my photos, capturing the beauty and unique character of Nova Scotia. 

ALL photos are taken by me in my 'drive-by shooting' style of photography so please come with me and ENJOY THE VISIT without leaving your chair and see some of our favourite spots on the planet.
