Tamsin has travelled back and forth several times across Canada by car, first with Mr. Tonks and then Zuma. Bit of a nomad.
She calls home The Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia, where she attempts to grow vegetables whilst waging war on every conceivable bug there is, both veggie-eating and human-eating. Chickens also play a large part in Tamsin’s life.
The farm and surrounds are part of her photographic palette, which is very rich in atmospheric subjects.
