A mutual friend, Debbie, introduced me to Marc’s work.

His love of travel, and unique way of recording his adventures, struck an immediate chord.

Work by artist Marc Lacaze Decorated envelopes adorned with postage stamps, calligraphy and his equisite watercolour work all intricately weave stories of travelling in far away places, creating images that ooze nostalgia.

He more recently created designs for American homewares company Williams-Sonoma, many emblazoning beautifully rendered cockeralls.

In the interview below, recorded about a year ago, he reveals the origin of some of his ideas and how he liked to work.
