collecting hearts ....

once upon a time 
many many years ago
in an enchanted forest
in the Schwartzwald in Germany....

fast forward 
through centuries untold and family history lost in the European winds of time
franz ...franzisca...franz...fran... frances...franchee...francesca and finally it is frances
......................who takes a quick jump to the East coast of Puglia...  
in between squally rain showers....and finding my first Nonna ( la Nonna Ana) picking wild ciccory on the sea coast and telling me the first recipe.....

"la grotta della poesia" ...... a huge and beautiful natural swimming pool with caves from out to sea and internal caves with words carved everywhere...


 old houses cut into the limestone seafront at San Foca
 "amore"... Italia....
 love is all around






at this moment i would like to thank my next 3 backers who have got me up to 54% of the project target !!! thank you so much !!!!

thank you to

Mark Bannerman a total creative genius-slash-guru who is a master of 3D imagery and brilliant sillyness, not to mention a really good painter , and he quite frankly has the funniest sense of humour in the land ...!
