More About This Title My Greek Island Home
One woman's journey from a hectic city life to rural bliss in a traditional Greek village, illustrated with stunning photography. The tang of salt in the air. Sunlight sparkling on clear blue water. Pomegranate seeds glistening like jewels in your palm. Australian artist, designer, and photographer Claire Lloyd had a successful career in London, a beautiful apartment, and a life filled with excitement and travel. However, she was beginning to feel exhausted by her life's hectic pace. One day a chance conversation with a friend led her to the Greek island of Lesvos, where she finally found what she was looking for—a sense of peace and the return of her creative drive. This book describes Claire's journey to a small village in Greece—the ancient land of gods and poets, where the seasons govern a way of life that has barely changed over thousands of years. Accompanied by Claire's stunning photographs filled with color and light, this inspirational story of reconnecting with nature and community, and finding beauty in the smallest details, will make you see the world anew.
Claire Lloyd was the art director for the launch of W magazine, and from there built a stellar career in magazines, film, video, books, and property. She is the author of Sensual Living.
