Cathie van der Stel -in l'Officiel!!

As announced before, Aquarellista and Hangar member Cathie van der Stel has been sought out to publish one of her beautiful paintings in the October issue of the wonderful Glossy 'L'Officiel Australia'. And we finally have a copy!! It is SO fabulous, There's a 'Contributors' page that features Cathie, next to Derek Henderson, famous Australian Photographer, Samara Bandine, a Colombian illustrator, who has already designed 3 covers for l'Officiel  (also the picture that you see above), Adam Flipp -a well-known fashion photographer from New Zealand and Oleg Soroko a furniture designer who has 'Fluid Elegance' as inspiration. Certainly the best of the best!

Here's the text (and we're in it too!!):

Australian-born artist Cathie van der Stel is now based in the south of France. Putting aside her French antique export business, she has shifted her focus to art. Van der Stel specialises in portraits, architectural renderings and reproducing furnitures and collectibles found at local markets in France. She was trained in Fina Art in Grasse (France) and is a member of an ever-evolving group of artists known as 'the Aquarellistas' in Chateauneuf de Grasse.

And here's the page with the painting... On the mirror is written with lipstick: 'The world is your oyster, you are the pearl'. So cool...

Here's a bigger version of the the actual painting:
Congratulations with this fantastic achievement Cathie!! I think I speak for everyone when I say we're very proud and happy to have you in our watercolour group!
