Welcome to my Inner World. I am a French self-taught artist, and these past twenty 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.

Green Man

Green Man


The Green Man. With a bunch of goblins, because that’s the kind of people he hangs out with when frost’s coming. Winter’s here but don’t worry, Green Man is taken care of.

The Dream Waker


I love cursed characters.  When I was a child I loved operas, especially by Wagner. The first opera I ever saw was the Flying Dutchman and it left a deep mark on me.  When I recently saw the Promise by Kaige Chen, I had trouble putting up with some truly bad acting BUT fell instantly in love with Snow Wolf. He reminded me of another character who ‘s fascinated me for a long while, the Sandman. The two kind of merged and I ended up with this character above.  The bell is also a reference to the Abhorsen’s bells in the Old Kingdom trilogy by Garth Nix which I’ve read three times (a record for me). There is one particular bell called Ranna, or the Sleeper, who has the power to make you fall asleep. The painting is called the Dream Waker because as you fall asleep you wake up in another reality. The Chinese background is loosely inspired by a wonderful trilogy called Dragon Keeper by Carole Wilkinson. I also read recently Myths of China and Japan by Mackenzie and was surprised to see how closely Wilkinson’s fantasy follows the facts.

Like any artist, I’m prey to the occasional crisis. With this painting, I decided to take some distance from what I usually do. It took me a certain amount of courage to go in a direction which I knew would not be as popular as some of my more “polished” paintings. I had immense pleasure painting this, I avoided the smudge tool and concentrated on textures.  Great fun.
