Design Diary: Artist’s Garden and Cottage on the Westport River

Last summer I visited artist Joy Hanken’s cottage on the Westport River in Westport, MA and wrote “In an Artist’s Garden” for the Boston Globe Magazine this past April.  It’s a lovely little spot, so I thought I’d share the photos with you.

I’m on vacation and late on deadlines, so forgive me for not including captions, but if there’s anything you want to know about, just ask and click over to the story in the Globe.
