Welcome to my Inner World

I am a French self-taught artist, and these past twenty years I have made Norway my home. Moving to the Lofoten islands was the greatest present I ever made to myself and the Arctic landscapes are indeed a true treat for any artist’s eyes. I live with my British soulmate, my sweet Papillon girls, Lucy and Pixie and the spirit of my border collie, Loki. My creativity is a tribute to the eyes that blink in the heart of every smallest thing, the flowing dreams whose pulse tries to reach to us in our most meditative state.

A Magical Garden

Summertime is when I work the most, therefore it gets very tricky to find the time and energy to paint. It happens quite often I manage to paint just a few hours here and there on a painting only to give up after a few weeks because the vision is gone and I lost the connection with what I had

Breathing the Green Woods

Unfortunately, I’ve lost a precious sweater, it fell from my bag, and when I retraced my steps 15 minuts later, it had already been found by someone and taken (read: stolen). It was hand-dyed, hand-spun and hand-woven. So now, to find comfort, I’ve started making a new one. There’s going to be lots of treasures in it, mohair and silk

The little bits of my paintings I love the most:

A Totally Random Post Popping Out Of Nowhere:

  • A Goblin
    I have learnt many things while taking this new direction with my latest goblin. I used some fusible interfacing paper in order to stop my hand woven fabric from fraying while sewing the costume but it didn't work out, my fabric being too thick and too loose. Sewing was a bore. God, I hate sewing. I finished with a white glue and it worked just as fine and actually better: less fraying and more control. But also, quicker! Some bits are still felted, like the shoes, the hands, the antlers and the parts sticking out on the shoulders. I would have never been able to do it in a neat and rigid way without the help of some clear matte varnish. I am really glad I found out this trick. The face is made of paperclay (papier maché) and I'm not sure I like this material entirely. I might try with my ceramic clay next time but without firing it. The clay I use actually contains paper fibers and it is fairly solid, even unfired. I'll have to see how it shrinks around the glass eyes. For the hair (I love the hair!), I dyed some tencel fibers a dark brown and it became all curly... and blonde, ha!ha! I guess it doesn't take too well the acid dye then, but I love this Venetian blonde. I also incorporated one of my ceramic beads, the bird. I have to make some more. All in all, I am pleased about this new direction, and very, very inspired. Now let me introduce this little goblin who is very much into books and is a bit shy.. Save
