Bonjour! This chic looking puss with the shy smile and Audrey Hepburn eyes is Mademoiselle Marie-Clawed. She is a young History of Art student at the famous École des Beaux-Arts on Paris’s Rive Gauche. When she’s not in lectures or at the library, she likes to spend her time drinking warm milk and eating croque-madames with other artists and intellectuals at the famous Les Deux Magots café. Though a struggling student (she lives in the tiniest little apartment in Montmartre – barely big enough to swing a cat in), she likes to invest money in her appearance – she never has a whisker out of place, and dresses in a style reminiscent of the fabulous Coco Chanel.

I think I was subconsciously inspired to draw this fancy French feline whilst daydreaming about my forthcoming road trip to France last autumn; it brought on romantic ideas of donning a classic Bretton top and a jaunty red beret.

Parisienne Puss is a five-colour Gocco print, hand-printed using three individual screens on my little Japanese Gocco PG11. This is one of a limited edition of 115 prints. Each print in this series will vary slightly due to the process of hand printing, making each print truly unique. Gocco prints have a charming naïve characteristic to them that sets them apart from other forms of printmaking. Gocco prints look really special up on your wall or propped-up on a shelf – like a miniature masterpiece. Once framed, they also make a perfect little gift – a really affordable way to give an original work of art! I like to print my Gocco prints on 5”x7” paper so that they can be either cropped into with a 6”x4” mount (matte) or else framed at 5”x7” with a white border.

Each print has been individually signed, numbered and dated in pencil by the artist (that’s moi!!)
