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,… Continue Reading

Experiments in felting

I’ve been working with different techniques this afternoon in order to restore my faith in felt.

For the first experiment, I needle felted and then wet felted with soap, and finally added more fibers with a needle.

For the second experiment, I just spread some fibers on top of some fusible paper and ironed. Then after, I added fibers with a needle. It actually felt easier because of the fusible fabric.

And here is what they look like shaped like pixie’s hats. The wet felted one:

And the fusible paper one:

The latter is a bit more fragile but I prefer it. Also, of course, it didn’t take as long. I think I prefer it but I’m not sure. I’m still not satisfied.

Troll Magic

A little Troll Lady lantern in progress. She might look frail but her magic is powerful. She might go slowly, very slowly, but she always reaches her destination.

Purple Cawl, Grey Underdress and Orange Apron Dress

This costume is going to take me a long while. I spend in average 10 days on each length and I need 5 more lengths. And then after, I want to make a cloak, and a collection of hanging aprons, one for every mood, but there’s no hurry. I love grey and orange together, they remind me of the Phoenix rising from its ashes.

Pixie’s Goblin

This is a little guardian for my Pixie. At first, I needle felted everything and I was not satisfied. I’ve been dissatisfied with felting for a long while, this is why I felted less often than I’d like because it always led me to disappointment. I wish I could take a course with a Russian needle felting master but this is not possible and perhaps this is not my thing. Instead, I followed my vision and used everything that could help me to reach my goal. I tore off the head. Very nasty, but the goblin listened to my plea and agreed.

Then I made another head with paper clay (paper maché), I inserted glass eyes, sanded the face and I varnished the head before painting on it. I reworked the crown to define it more, I applied clear varnish on the inside. I also used bits of my hand woven fabrics and I think I will definitely go in that direction, incorporate more weaving while still felting the body and adding felted elements like leaves, stars and the like. I also added bits of organza here and there. And here he is, shimmering and very pleased with my work.
