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.

Cutouts

I’ve been wanting to go back to physical painting for a while. I have so many good memories of painting on big wooden boards, drinking tea, and being careful not to drop the paintbrush in the cup (which nevertheless happened more often than I can recall). So I got a scroll saw machine and reopened my box of oils. THIS IS FUN!

I still paint the draft digitally, colors, shades and all, which I find very practical (it’s also quick and it gives me an idea of the final result, even if I’ll improvise a bit on the way).

Progressively

Getting a bit closer to what I want to make but not quite. Glazes are so frustrating. This time, I applied nearly everything with a sponge instead of a paintbrush. I applied 4 layers of Opalescent over my underglazes but I want to try with 6. So, once again, not entirely satisfied but a bit more hopeful…

I have to add some beads to my tree.

Beads, Tiles and Dishes

I’m a bit disappointed with the underglazes. I think I like them only when they’re not covered with a transparent glaze. But I love my Opalescent glazes, madly. I’m just eager to create more pieces until I can use glazes and underglazes in the combination that feels right to me.

Some beads about which I’m very pleased:

Vassilissa My Friend

As I was finishing my felted lamp this morning, I got completely carried away and forgot I had to go to work! Fortunately, there is still time to post these two (bad) pictures and pack some lunch before I leave. I also wanted to proudly announce: I got my driving license!

This Norwegian wool is fantastic! I’ll never go back to Merino!
