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

Lucy

Let me introduce you to our dearest little friend, Lucy, a Papillon of 8 weeks old. She is still very fragile and sensitive to cold, so as soon as I receive her little coat, I will take her a bit further than the garden. Unfortunately, everything is still covered with snow at the moment, but perhaps on the shore the snow will have melted, so she can delight in interesting smells. I think she weighs no more than 600 grams. We move in slow motion inside the house for it’d be easy to step on her by accident. At night, she sleeps on my pillow and since then, I have the most vivid dreams. She will get stronger, of course, and next year we will welcome into our little circle a Border Collie puppy. Lucy is very clever, she learns fast. This is only the third day and she already knows six words, “sit”, “fetch”,”look”,”come here”, “poopoo”, and “stop”. Well, the last word is still a bit harder for her to grasp, puppies must be puppies after all. She is so cute, we totally adore her. I think she knows it.

My trip to France took me to Brittany, I visited Quimper, Monts d’Arrée, Crozon and Huelgoat. I took a few pictures with my old lightweight camera:

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.
