Africa has millions of children orphaned by HIV / AIDS. Jacob, 15, our adopted son, is one of them. He is smart, clever, funny, generous, wonderful and (I think) gorgeous!!

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
