Marcel is a tiny cat. He likes eating cardboard, sleeping next to the fire stove and laying down on my sketchbook when I work. But above all, he loves running around the garden, looking for adventures behind every single flower, climbing in the apple trees and chasing butterflies. When I moved abroad, Marcel stayed in my hometown - and I think of him a lot. So when I painted this pattern collection, I pictured him in a lively spring garden. Marcel's dreamy place is filled with watercolour pansies, lots of other cat friends and sunshine.
