Letters from London


Maggie from Manhattan began as a painter in Soho.

 She did what all downtown New Yorkers did: anything that seemed creative and fun; making art, designing clothing, costumes, wall paper, windows, interiors, writing for publications covering the scene and publishing her own webzine.

 Five years ago she moved back to London, after having spent a year there years before, basically on a whim; the whim being predicated by US politics.

Letters from London

She emails her friend Lulu from London who lives in New York the latest news and gossip and plans to stay in London for ever ' for the humor.

Read Maggie's whimsical, funny and oh-so-New York take on all things British in her "Letters from London" column.
