Edinburgh is my home. I was a nomad before I felt in love with this city . I have 3 collections of Edinburgh made over the last 6 years and keep making new designs all the time . I love it's irregular architecture and the texture of its old mouldy walls. I try to express it on my own weird ways . The original paintings are made in watercolour and collage, I hand craft many of my watercolours for a more saturated effect.
I started the Glasgow illustrations in spring 2020 during the first Covid lockdown. To me they feel very different from my recent work , I find that when one works from memory (even when you use reference pictures ) you capture better the soul of a place , because you only remember beautiful things , I had a similar experience with my first Edinburgh paintings that made during my holidays because I missed the place . I hope you enjoy them .
I love London . As a student in Chichester west Sussex I used to visit London every weekend I had a chance and spend the day alone visiting museums or simply getting lost . I always though of it as a magical city .
Animals and a typewriter
Animals and a yellow typewriter . This collection was painted in the city of Nantes where there are machine - animals . Painted machine animals would have been amazing but for some weird reason I spend a whole month wanting to visit the zoo and see real animals . But the zoo and I have a strange relationship , for one side I am a big fan of Gerald Durrell animal conservation books but for an other I always find the zoo sad. So at the end I never found my way to the zoo.
