We are in an instant in Paris’ fashionable entertainment halls. Perhaps it is the present, maybe we have travelled back to the times of artist Toulouse-Lautrec… The women are timelessly beautiful and the pen strokes are forceful end exact, yet spontaneous and poetic. To put it simply – the drawings are very much Lovisa Burfitt. Welcome to the world of the everything but ordinary people!
