My favourite days are those spent in creating. Hours pass like minutes, and now it’s time for tea. Want a butler and a cook. This is a project based around the fascinating Joseph Cornell, who was a collector and a presenter of dreamworlds. Self taught and caring for a poorly brother, he never left New York.

He was well regarded during his day, though he shunned the limelight, loving storytelling, film, the surreal and the simply lovely. He was a true American, doing it ‘his way’.
