A selection of my paintings were used for the worldwide Zara Home Autumn Winter 2020 campaign. One of these shoots took place in Gent and another at Gairnshiel in Ballater, Scotland, a place that coincidentally holds a very special place in my heart. My Belgian grandparents lived for 15 years at Laggan Cottage in Ballater before they sold it to the current owner of Gairnshiel. So, from the time I was born, I spent my family holidays over there in the Grampians. A small world indeed. One of my paintings now happily resides at the Gairnshiel residence, a piece of me still present in Ballater.
