Dreaming in watercolors
We are very proud to introduce an incredibly talented artist from Paris. Freshness, Vivid, Humility and Energetic are for us the words to describe best Ms. Lucile Prache! Lucile has been mastering the art of Illustration and decided to share her passion within Keenobby‘s creative community.
Her notoriety keeps growing along with her success as an accomplished artist but we managed to get a few insights from Lucile, just for you:
When did you realize you could turn your talent into a business and how did you get the ball rolling?
Your illustrations and recipe prints are getting a little more famous every day, did you ever struggle with finding inspiration?
Luckily, I still work as an illustrator for clients like advertising agencies, magazines, styling agencies, publishers, which means I create new prints whenever time permits. While working on commissioned illustrations, I am most of the time inspired by new ideas that just pop up but I can’t work on them until my schedule allows me to focus on my personal projects. When finally comes that time, I have already gathered several ideas so I don’t really struggle with inspiration.
A glimpse at Lucile’s Studio
According to you, what is the biggest milestone you have achieved so far? What’s the next one?
It has nothing to do with my food illustrations! I have worked on an advent calendar for Dior (which can be seen here:http://www.lucileprache.com/dior/).
I had a lot of fun. The next one would be a new cookbook including recipe illustrations from around the world, I would love to work on this kind of project!
Can you reveal Lucile Prache’s favorite dish?
My favorite dish in summer is stuffed tomatoes, and in winter I don’t know how you can translate: les endives au gratin! (oven dish: endives with grated cheese on top) And most of all I enjoy the japanese food very much.
