Alice Devereux, my granny, lived through two world wars, and the bits of peace between.

The frame is made from the lid of her piano (beautiful wood - they didn't use veneers back then).

She played the piano to accompany silent movies in the Inglewood Town Hall. She did a great job of improvising - I loved her galloping cowboys.
Dale's studio can be found at Puniho,
Surf Highway, Coastal Taranaki, New Zealand

More of her artwork, and the books she makes, can be found on her site at
