I am so excited to be launching my vibrant new Fine Art Edition Print of The Michelin Building, London


The newest addition to my London Landmarks!

The Michelin Building is an art-deco delight


It's artistic allure isn't exclusive to its colourful tiled and eye-catching exteriors. Originally it was home to the Michelin Tyre building and, being designed by one of it's employees François Espinasse, it includes large stained glass windows featuring the Michelin Man "Bibendum".


It is now home to Michelin-starred Bibendum Restaurant & Oyster Bar, the Conran shop and the flower shop Petals at Bibendum that spills out onto the Fulham Road.

As a painter, this is such an iconic building to capture as it has so many decorative elements from the stained glass windows to the coloured tiles and the ornate ironwork above the restaurant entrance.
I wanted to include it in my London Landmarks as I also love how people interact with a building. Here you can find the passers-by, the restaurant clientele and the browsers at the flowers shop as they are on a typical day.
This painting is as much about the people as the architecture. The people are diners, customers, residents, tourists.....we can play many different roles in a day

I love the Art Deco facade of the Michelin Building and I have been visiting The Conran Shop inside the building ever since I was an art student, dreaming that I would own some of their chairs someday for my future home.


I wanted to capture the building with the people outside, like a snapshot of everyday in that moment. I use acrylic and monoprint for my paintings.
