About the Book
This book is filled with photographs that I have taken day to day over the last few years.
Its really a visual account of things that brighten my day.
Some have been taken on trips to Scotland and the Uk, but mostly they are taken close to where I live , in and around Houston, Texas.
I live in Houston, Texas with my american husband Sean and our four crazy cats that keep life very interesting. http://papernstitchblog.com/2010/06/23/colorful-house-tour-with-mccheeks-mayhem/#more-19758 I'm originally from Edinburgh, spent 15 years in London, doing my degree and postgraduate in ceramics and then spent five years running my own business; Candy's Chandies, making and designing lights and chandeliers, which I sold in shops, museums, art galleries all over the world. I recently 'Quit My Day Job" and started a business called McCheek's Academy where I teach ceramics after school classes ,adult evening classes and summer camps. I love to make my own ceramics too, I 'm really into slip casting and I still love the feeling of opening the kiln and seeing what surprises are inside. I can't stop making things, its the only way I keep sane. I'm also obsessed about taking photos, you can check some of them out on: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mccheek
