  • You thought it was spices? Not this time! While the rest of the world tends to paint their houses grey, in Morocco they bring life in colour over their houses. Can you pass by without taking a photo? I decided to record it on film and then paint its opened bellies.

  • A friend of mine wanted this portrait of an old man, not knowing what else to have on the painting. While researching her brief, this version came up. I wanted the old manhood and the loneliness to be apparent. Once the painting started taking shape the idea came to me to add a companion, a contrasting figure, on his arm . . . a little kitten.
