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 seventeen 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 girl, Lucy and the ghost of 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

Red Gold

Lucy loves climbing on rocks. Sometimes on vertical rocks. She keeps trying and being very confident about it, my little rock climber.

Oh I love autumn after the rain! The colors are most vivid and I feel like I’m in a fairy tale. Maybe I am?


I think that in honor of so much beauty around us, we ought to live our lives like fairy tales. Otherwise, there’s a serious mismatch. Truly, that’s the least we can do!

Northern lights and… cake

There have been some fantastic northern lights lately, it was so amazing there was actually an article about it in the local newspaper. Thanks to a geomagnetic storm, the aurora was particularly intense, colorful and lasted a long time. So long my neck got stiff, I had to lie in the grass. The angle was interesting and somehow intimidating.

A few pictures taken from my garden:

I love this picture of Lucy, her fur is like silk, so beautiful. Isn’t she a little fairy dog? That was probably the last sunny day we got before a long time.

Here’s a cake:


It’s an apricot one. Delicious. And look who’s hoping for a bite! You will see her in the mirror.

Shadow Play


The sun is now rolling along the edge of the hill just behind the house, and shines timidly through the trees into my room. Today, it hit a mirror whose brightness cast moving shadows on the wall,  the perfect setting for story telling.

I went back to the same heights as two days ago, but this time the sun was shining. It was a totally different place.

And today we went on a walk along the fjord.

I did wonder what Lucy was barking at, when I saw it, four meters behind us. A very, very sweet Highland cow.

First Snow

I finally finished this painting but it won’t be part of a diorama as I had planned. My dog was dying when I was working on this diorama, so it’s now tainted with sadness. I saved this little bit. Meanwhile, I’m working on another painting of a town (but no snow) and it’s very enjoyable. No bad association. Only a Halloween mood.
