See all my Chinoiserie designs.

Chinoiserie (from 'chinois' - the French for Chinese), as a style was inspired by art and design from China and other Asian countries. Characteristics include asymmetry, playful contrasts of scale, fanciful imagery and fantastic landscapes: filled with exotic buildings such as pagodas and pavilions; birds, dragons, and people in Chinese clothing. The Victoria and Albert Museum has some nice examples. The scenes in my design were inspired by a much-loved illustration - very much in the Chinoiserie style - by A. Groves-Raines in my childhood book of Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales (1st published 1950).

Art pen on cel & line art, basic repeat.
