A collection of Valentine’s Day cards for the franco-fiend in your life: the gourmand, the “summer water” drinker, the Paris Fashion Week stalker, the home cook who loves Julia Child as much as Marvin Gaye, the contemporary art snob. I’ve got you covered.

Need a little Parisian pick-me-up?  Preorder my book Paris in Stride. Lauren Collins, author of When in French and staff writer at The New Yorker says “it’s like your fantasy BFF crossed with Google Maps.” And all the cobblestoned streets, corner bistros and architectural wonders are gorgeously illustrated in breathtaking watercolor with a healthy dose of whimsy. It’s the book to make a Francophile’s heart sing or IOU Valentine’s Day gift. Preorder here.

Just in time for the ho-ho-ho and mistletoe, I just launched a shiny new eshop ready for the holiday rush.

It includes prints of some of my favorite illustrations, ready to frame and hang.

All prints are lovingly hand-signed in watercolor in my studio in Paris and wrapped in recyclable packaging with a few special touches added to each order.
