The 'Lisbon Collection' kit is specially designed for drawing Portuguese azulejo patterns. Compact in size, it easily fits into a handbag.

It all started in 2017 in Lisbon...

Agathe Cornet-Vernet
Painter and creator of Formettes

In July 2017, wanting to leave Parisian life behind, Lisbon imposed itself on me as the place for a new stage in my life.

I arrived with the intention of recreating what had brought me joy in Neuilly-sur-Seine: a free expression painting workshop where children and adults could paint without constraints. Alongside this activity, I continued my own artistic journey and joyfully raised my three daughters.
