Congratulations to SBA Fellow Florence Gendre who has designed a postage stamp for Monaco!
Florence is a superb artist and her social media pages are filled with exquisite illustrations, but this is definitely one of our favourites!!
Florence told us a little bit about her adventure in Monaco-
“In January 2022, I was contacted by the Monegasque Post Office to create the annual stamp representing the floral arrangements of the bouquet contest organized by the Garden Club of Monaco.
I was asked for three successful designs, the one of irises was chosen by the commission.
I had the honor to be invited to Monaco, from November 24 to 26, to the prestigious Monacophil exhibition to sign this stamp as well as my book “Lettres aux Arbres”.
The exhibition was inaugurated by H.S.H. Prince Albert II who greeted each of the 27 artists present.
Collectors and dealers from all over the world are present at this event.
This was a unique opportunity to meet artists of very high quality and to live an incredible experience.
A true life of a princess!”
