Walking around Margaret Island is one of my favourite activities when I visit my home city, Budapest. It has a rich history dating back a millenium including tatars, Medieval monasteries, kings' residencies and poets. This beautiful park that sits right at the heart of the city, got its name from Pricess Margaret of Hungary. It's the one place where my family of four always go for a walk when we are in town. I love the story that unfolds through its landmarks and beautiful trees.
During lockdown I started illustrated joyful moments to keep the family spirit up and running. Every little detail of this household map is linked with a special moment during lockdown from turning a melon into a bumblebee, to watching pigeons showering in the rain, playing music and learning new skills.
