Artist, designer and photographer Claire Lloyd enjoyed a phemenal career in London for many years. Living in a beautiful apartment, with a life filled with excitement and travel, she continued working like a maniac until 2004 when glandular fever stopped her in her tracks. During her long recuperation, she realised her priorities were changing, and her life needed restructuring. A chance conversation with a friend led her to the Greek island of Lesvos, where she finally found what she was looking for - a sense of peace and the return of her creative drive. The book describes Claire's days in a small village in Greece, where the seasons govern a way of life that has barely changed over thousands of years. Accompanied by Claire's stunning photographs filled with colour and light, this inspirational story of reconnecting with nature and community, and finding beauty in the smallest details, will make you see the world afresh.
Claire Lloyd was born in Australia, and moved to London in her early twenties after two and a half years as an art director at Australian Vogue. In London she was the art director for World of Interiors and the launch of the British edition of W Magazine, and from there built a stellar career in magazines, film, video, books and property. Her first book Sensual Living showed readers how to create a home that stimulates all the senses. She now lives in Greece with her partner and lots of animals, but travels regularly to Sydney and London where she owns yet more properties!
