About Us

Johnny and Dee have lived together in Ballygally for over thirty years. During that time, they raised a family while working as Art teachers.


As practising artists themselves, the couple have poured their combined passion for fine arts and crafts into the design and decoration of their home.


Dee and Johnny enjoy cooking and cultivating their own produce, used extensively in their recipes. Both are keen gardeners with an eye for detail, and have enjoyed curating the gardens around their home into wildlife sanctuaries, including an orchard and vegetable garden.
