His elegant compositions show the latest fashion within elegant and imaginative fashion narratives that usually portrayed underlying humour in each situation.

The portrayal of fashion by the pochoir method was perfected by skilful artists in France, and pochoir, the French word for stencil, has been adopted worldwide ever since to describe the labour-intensive process of cutting a separate stencil for successive applications of watercolour to create the fine detail with clarity and depth of colour.
