Paris has been on lockdown for about a month now.
And when local shoe designer Lina Nordin Gee saw that all her stock had been “taken hostage” in closed Paris shops, she decided to pick up a paintbrush instead.
And what followed has been truly captivating. And I’m not just saying that because she is my wife.
Every day, Lina has been sharing a timelapse video of her watercolour paintings and her 5,000 strong Instagram following has been going crazy for it.
One day it’s Audrey Hepburn, the next it’s a look at the artists of Place du Tertre in Montmarte. Today it was the bouquinistes of the Seine.
I interviewed her about in on today’s podcast episode, talking about why she’s doing it, how she does it, and what’s coming next. Listen below and please subscribe!
Here are some of her paintings. I wonder what she’ll make tomorrow… (Tip: Press the play button on the images below to see the time lapse!)
