Chinoiserie Reinterpreted

Chinoiserie, a style first started in France in the 17th century, is one of my favorite historical styles — playful, fantastical, and joyful portrayed as what the Europeans envisioned of Cathay. I have adapted it to my own approach, and find it suits my skills and temperament.*

*Chinoiserie Notes
Small Chinoiserie: All of these images are derived from large murals. Acrylic on canvas.
Chinoiserie Rooms & Walls: I had two delightful Chinoiserie projects with two perfect client couples. One, the 20x20' Morris living room, and the other the Baxter entry which involved 300 linear feet of canvas and a staircase. Most of the canvas panels were 25’ high.
