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…

In the Woods

Home Sweet Home

These days, I’ve started painting over some of my ugly 70’s furniture, I had immense fun painting again with real paint brushes and acrylics. Now, just three more pieces of furniture to go. I really like the idea that you can still do something soulful for your home with little means.

Also, here are some pictures taken a while ago. Since then, it’s been raining. Another very mild winter is on its way.

For those who expressed their concern about Loki, thank you again for your kind thoughts. Loki is doing admirably well. He still eats and goes for walks two hours a day.
