Tea with my friend Susanne makes me happy so I asked her to take a photo of me. We were sitting in her sunny kitchen. She is always there, with her beauty and calm, and the kettle is always on. Susanne is a rare being. She laughs easily and we talk and it’s just easy and light. She is an artist and everything in her home is bejewelled, covered in sequins, patchwork, upholstery, embroidery and joy. Like me, she creates quite compulsively. It’s so necessary for us both, like food, or tea. I love my friends.
