Welcome

me1Welcome to the gallery of my Inner World.

The Inner World is the Soul bordering on a larger Soul which is commonly called the Anima Mundi, the Otherworld. 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. I am a French self-taught artist, and these past fifteen 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 companion and my border collie, Loki.

My paintings, I guess, are atmospheric fairy tales. I start each of them with only the feel of the atmosphere I want to reproduce to lead me. Throughout the painting process, there is a deep interaction ongoing with the unconscious and each painting requires deep concentration in order to remain open to any suggestion coming from the unconscious. When creativity flows, there is no blank, only the urgency to catch all these shimmering treasures which are a gift from the deeper Self.

Faerie Worlds are by far my favourite muse. I can never paint enough all the mysteries they contain. Where Nature blends with Soul, there cannot be rigidity and photographic precision, only movement and a glimpse of a rainbow. It is known that faeries can only be seen from the corner of one’s eye, and so it is with my paintings, somehow incomplete, leaving space for the imagination…

My Digital Art

In the Woods

Oils on Ceramic

Traduction Française ici

I finished painting a few brooches with oils, and I like them. I say brooches, but actually they could also work as pendants, or even glued on furniture or on a wall as decorative accents.

And my favourite:

I won’t sell those, I will wear them or give them as presents. But when I come back from France, I’ll make more.

I also started a new diorama and this is a work in progress, there’ll be many other layers:

I think if you want to enjoy a meal at this table, you’d better bring a hot water bottle.

A Cosy Evening Incredimail Stationery

It’s been a long time since the last incredimail stationery I created, so here is a special treat for those who like to write to friends and family on a special background.

Acid Dyes

Traduction Française ici
I think I’m getting better at it. I spent most yesterday dyeing wool for my felting. I used Jacquard acid dyes and previously when I tried, I always ended up with some bits not having taken the dye at all. This time, I tapped the wool with my fingers to help the dye spread. I’m quite pleased with the results.

A Walk

Traduction Française ici

Today, almost two weeks since my dog passed away, I went for a walk. I was apprehensive since in 13 years, I never went for a walk without him, and I miss him so much. But it went fine. It was a lovely walk and I’m sure Loki came along, It feels like spring but don’t be fooled, there’s still a long way before we see buds on the trees. Meanwhile, I’ll soon be travelling to France and I will stay there for two weeks.
