Hand Painted Tags. Antique French Book Plates and more.

Having a bit of a fleur day. Thinking of France, Versailles and French perfume gardens.

My latest little paintings on tags and book pages are inspired by my times living in France, where, I would collect antique, vintage French books and magazines, for as little 1 euro, from the the local book sales. After the market closed, the vendors sometimes, would throw away, torn, ripped books, which I collected for free. Many of the pages in the books and magazines are thin, discolored and aged, which adds to their beauty.

I love France its like a second home to me. My daughter used to live in Paris, so I able to live among the locals and get a good feel for the French culture. My daughter now, lives in London so I get to go there too.

I’m still working on immersing myself in the English culture. Last time I was there, I managed to do a bit of mudlarking, theater and art galleries. As well as, make some art. I absolutely loved Hampton Court Palace, which is just a stones throw away.

The gardens from the countries I visit are the idea behind my latest series of hand- painted tags, book pages and water- colour paintings. My little flower paintings are not true botanical paintings and sometimes have a little abstract twist.
