Living Laduree

Thursday, June 16, 2011

Hello Darlings,

I've continued to follow my heart and paint more and more delectable deserts. I'm not entirely sure why I'm so driven and inspired by food items these days but they are such a pleasure to paint. I've titled this post 'Living Laduree' because for those of you who are familiar with the Parisian patisserie, you know that Laduree is synonymous with luxury. In other words the theme here is 'Living Luxury'. So many people have asked me what my preoccupation with food is and I would have to say that for me it's just another extension of a fashionable lifestyle.

I was asked recently for a feature what my relationship with fashion is. As far as I'm concerned fashion isn't just what you wear, it's a way of life. The next time you're sitting in a chic little cafe, look around and observe the customers next to you. Where and what we are seen eating is as important as what you're seen wearing. It's another reflection of who you are, your taste, your cultural flair. So maybe in a way I've answered my own question here, why I'm so drawn to painting food these days. A mouthwatering mille-feuille is as much a statement as a great pair of Manolos.

Lots of love,
Meag xx

  11. I've been far away from your blog for too long and I apologize, but Italy really got all my attention in the past week :P

    You wanna know a funny thing? The other day when you came to my blog and told me all those wonderful things I started to think how beautiful would it be to meet in Paris: endless afternoons in museums, marathons of shopping and hours and hours spent breathing the atmosphere of that magic city... I imagined me and you painting something sitting at the Tuileries and I thought, almost instictively, that you would draw beautiful and colorful macarons (because I know that you love to illustrate food, especially cakes)
    And the day after I came here (I read this post when you published it 10 days ago) and I found the macarons!! I think it's a sign of destiny... What do you think? ;-)

    A big kiss


  12. @Al as soon as I start making money from all these illustrations I will book a flight to visit you wherever; Italy, Belgium, France, you name it :) it would be so wonderful to meet you and experience all the things we are equally passionate about. We could document the journey through wonderful fashion illustrations on our blogs. Destiny YES!! xoxoxo

  14. @Flara you're so kind, your work is so beautiful as well!! I love your use of color and obvious fashion flare.
