In August 2012 I skipped out of the garden variety easy-life-half-lived in Australia to come to the Monte Amiata region in Southern Tuscany and I haven’t looked back too much 😉

I make a living by creating things – from metal, from recycled materials, from words – and, as I’m bilingual, also from teaching and translating.

    I love your blog Kitty Katmandoo – and your art too! Am intrigued by your blog name though …. we have a cat which my young son named Tiger Lily Kit Kat (Kt Kat for short), so it makes me smile when I see your blog!

      Hi Julie Funny you should say that, as the name came about through calling the cats by their spontaneous nicknames (they probably own about 9 each, one for each of their lives). Kittybing, Dingkitty, Blingning, Fingerdish, Tettenman…Katmanikin. It evolved from there. Weird way of coming up with a business name, I know 😉
