Today Ian and I have been doing advance reconnaissance in the Barossa Valley. Tomorrow we will look and measure up a bit in our soon-to-be-new-home. We must also find a rental property, or at least find some leads. And find some leads for the all-important new garage for Ian, which is a critical early to do. then lots of planning and logistics to organise !
Very exciting to see the Sold sign on the house we are buying too !
On a country road not too far away I saw some new neighbors, happily enjoying late winter afternoon sunshine as they enjoyed a meal of hay.
Hello and welcome to Blue Koi Studio Blog. I will be posting about my art, inspirations, and my artistic journey. I will also share some links and resources on the blog. Some of you have asked me to show some of my artwork in progress. I hope you enjoy the posts and I love hearing your thoughts too !

I am a designer and artist, security consultant, and small business owner. I grew up in California, living in many parts of the Golden State. Northern, Southern, and Central Coast. I spent 15 years in public service plus several more as a contractor, for a total of 20 years in Washington DC. In 2001 I moved to Sydney with a work opportunity and called Australia home ever since. In 2010,my husband and I moved from the big city (Sydney) to the Barossa Valley wine country in South Australia where we are now putting on final stages of renovating a 113 year old stone house that is now our home. We launched our Brocante in the Barossa design studio in 2013.
