six degrees of pia jane
It was the evening of the Royal Wedding and it was an awfully wet night but undaunted, quite a throng gathered for some bubbles and a chance to meet Pia.
The lovely Pia.
Quite a queue formed for Pia to sign copies of her book, My Heart Wanders.
Champagne flowed and goodies were served by 2 charming French boys.
Once the speeches were over we left Ariel for some dinner at our favourite fish cafe, seacow. We recognised 2 of the ladies who'd been at the book launch and stopped for a chat. This is where I discovered the 6 degrees of Pia Jane Bijkerk.
I discovered Pia's blog about 18 months ago. She showed photos of Kylie Johnson's ceramics on her blog and I purchased some items online. When I learned Kylie was soming to Sydney Finders Keepers last year, I decided to visit. Kyle was a delight and when I asked if I could take photos of Paperboat Press, she agreed. From those photos I was asked to photograph Sydney Finders Keepers summer markets, where I photographed the elkhorn store run by Monique and her mother. How funny that I should connect with them through Pia?
Congratulations to Pia on the launch of her book. If Friday night was anything to go by, the book should be a raging success.
Bye for now,
