A holiday to France and Italy in 1993 was a life-changing experience captivating Lianne's imagination and passion for European life-style, streetscapes and culture. Further trips to Italy, Sicily, Greece, Portugal and Spain. For inspiration, Lianne uses her skills in photography, capturing unique and stunning images of the architecture, discovering delightful laneways of century-old buildings, wrought iron balconies spilling over with red and pink geraniums. She loves the animation of people dining or sipping coffee at their favourite cafe, vibrant colours of fresh food and flower markets held in the Italian piazzas early morning and people going about their day.
