Lucile Prache has been studying ballet since childhood and feels that her illustrations are just like dance pieces—everything appears to be easy. “Dancers are always smiling on stage,” she says, “but there is a lot of work behind the stage.”
Lucile’s Jewish-themed beautiful watercolor food illustrations first caught my eye on her Etsy shop, Lucile’s Kitchen, where she has been designing and selling her kitchen art prints and watercolor recipes since 2010. (Be sure to check out Lucile’s entire line of prints here.)
Lucille’s inspiration comes from real life: “Typography on labels, dirty papers on the sidewalk (yes, I am a Parisian!), kitsch postcards of Brooklyn, a vibrant green top on a girl in the street, vintage books of English china, figs at the market—almost any image can inspire me.”
Lucile lives and works in her studio in Paris. In addition to her shop, she’s an in-demand illustrator for the fashion industry working with high fashion houses from Dior Haute couture to YSL parfums and Longchamp. She also illustrates many cookbooks and works with food and fashion magazines all over the world.
Beautiful, right?!! These delightful prints would be right at home in any kitchen.
Thank you, Lucile for sharing some of your beautiful work with us and for letting us peek in your charming studio.
