British-born artist Deborah Hide-Bayne passed through the Coromandel expecting little more than happy holiday memories. Instead she found a lifestyle that stopped her in her tracks.
Some years later and she’s a local – married with a young son, an orchard at her door and a view of the bush-clad hills behind. Life revolves around the seasons, the weather and whether the fish are biting.
Deborah writes about life at home with her young family: painting, cooking, baking, preserving and loving life. Read and you’ll be transported to a simpler place, where time slows and there is a wonderful smell coming from the kitchen.
