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 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 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…

Fabrics Tell Stories

I’m in heaven. The warp threads didn’t (yet) break, the tension seems right and the texture is so soft, delightful to the touch. It took me one hour to weave this (about 15 cm in length on a width of 74 cm), it’s fast enough for me, and so much fun to combine all these beautiful yarns:

Second Attempt

It took me 5 hours (after a first failed attempt) to warp my loom. My back’s broken. I think I’ll do it in a different way next time, this was most uncomfortable. BUT it’s beautiful already! I hope I won’t get any nasty surprises. I chose grey colors, surprisingly, for my first weaving. I love wearing brown and grey, the pilgrim colors, they remind me of earth and rock.

Tomorrow, I’ll weave my first row!
