What Matters Most (2018) - Celebrating my relationship with seven remarkable women, this constellation of new portraits shines a light onto core themes in our lives:  the importance of sincerity and honesty, unconditional love, the power of laughter and the vital force of women supporting one another – actively listening, sharing innermost thoughts, finding the courage to expose their vulnerabilities, helping one another to stretch and grow in the face of pain and personal challenge – and often over a lovely cuppa!
