One artist who has captured the beauty of Paper Starlights at events is Valerie Pirlot, a Belgian artist who is now based in the UK. Valerie has painted the Paper Starlights stall twice at the Bath Christmas Market, and her beautiful oil paintings capture the enchanting atmosphere that the lanterns create.
It no coincidence that its Bath Christmas Market where Valerie has painted the Paper Starlights Christmas chalet – for the market is possibly the best example in the UK of how a market can bring many businesses and people together.Bath Christmas market, late afternoon. Valerie Pirlot, 2019.
Valerie's paintings showcase the way that the lanterns glow in the light. They also capture the way that the lanterns create a sense of warmth and intimacy, even in large public spaces. The paintings are a testament to the way that Paper Starlights can bring a touch of magic to any event, no matter how big or small.
'As an artist inspired by light, the Paper Starlights stand at the Christmas market is a real treat to paint. I’ve been visiting the Bath Christmas market for many year and always feel the Starlights stand shines like a heart at the centre of the market; it gives a warm and welcoming feel and makes it so inviting for the visitors. This is the feeling I try to convey with paint.' - Valerie Pirlot
