to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

Coco visiting Yvonne

Coco Lily in Yvonne's doll's house
I built the doll's house some 20 years ago, using the building plans for the house my late neighbour Yvonne lived in. These wooden houses were built after World War II in the Ardennes-Belgium to house people who lost their homes. After rebuilding new stone houses, the wooden houses were dismantled and sold as weekend and holiday houses. It is in one of these relocated houses that Yvonne lived; a very lively and interesting old lady.
Coco Lily is an Aussie girl with Belgian and Swiss roots.
