Welcome

Welcome to my Inner World.

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 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 Simple Vest

I love this color and the alpaca wool is incredibly soft:

The design is very simple but can you believe this, it took 4 hours to sew? With a sewing machine?

Finally

I don’t want to hear about sewing before a while. I’ve been working too much on this sewing machine, I’m totally saturated. But I have now a few nice clothes. They are very warm. Perhaps too warm. I might have to move to Svalbard. Although I heard it’s not as cold as it used to be. I guess I just have to move to Yakutia then. But I don’t think my girls would enjoy that. A vest and a mantle:

Hygge Clothes

I finally made two garments that I can actually wear ( I won’t show you the others), a tunic and a mantle:

The shapes are actually plain and simple. I should have opted for this design from the beginning, it would have saved me some precious fabrics. I’m going to stick to these personal templates from now on, introducing just a few very small variations here and there but without taking any risk.

Composite Weave

I was weaving with King Cole Country Tweed yarn and although I like this shade very much, there was no magic.

It just didn’t work with my merino warp yarn. So after 50 cm, I decided to try something else. I think this particular tweed yarn will work better with a dark brown warp. I’ve come back to composing with one main yarn and lots of different ornamental yarns here and there. This is my favourite type of weaving. And I also get to add shiny things! Only 10 days til I travel to France for two weeks. I’ll be very busy with sewing and pretty much nothing else (but I still want to watch Wallace and Gromit again, I’ve developed a fondness for these characters). The good news is that I’m getting now slightly better at sewing (I’ve also simplified the hand-made template that I use).
