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. I live with my British soulmate,… Continue Reading

There’s hardly been any snow this winter. But today there is a strong blizzard which even sticks to the windows (nice and cosy). The wind has dropped, I think I’ll go to the forest with my snow shoes. I’ve gone back to felting, in my hands another goblin. I’m glad to announce that soon there will be prints for sale in my Etsy shop. I finally got the hang out of this wonderful printer.
Dahud is a very, very old friend of mine, she still lives in her submerged city of Ys off the coast of Brittany. The legend said she caused the flood to take the city down to the bottom of the sea, but I believe that, being a goddess of the Sea, she took her beloved city with her, back into her realm. You see, people were not yet ready for her. And the new Christian religion didn’t help the matter. But as the song goes, Ys will rise again when Paris (Par-Ys) will sink. The legend also says that Dahud was everything that Christianity abhors – she liked sex, she was into witchcraft, she was wild and passionate. The same legend gave her the Devil as a partner (and her downfall) but here, I gave her better than that. I gave her a Morgan. Morgans are Mermen, they belong to the very rich folklore of Brittany.
I dreamed I was in a room and through the floor there were some demons dragging the damned down to the Underworld. At one point, I couldn’t stand it anylonger and I challenged the demons by talking to the damned. I asked them “Why do you go down with the demons when you could go with the goblins, they too live down there and they are servants of the Soul, they will take care of your soul, they will even give you a new one. “. The flow of the damned started to go and search for the goblins and the demons were not too happy about that. Later in the dream, as the community was in better hands, I went to the Underworld to give a conference about goblins and the good they do to one’s soul.

I’ve just added my first physical item to my Etsy store. This took me at least 10 working days to create. I hope he will find a nice home.
It’s wet felted and needle felted, embroidered and decorated with beads, tinsel and sequins. This little chap is a great traveller, a real and daring adventurer. He is fearless but not brainless. He’s just in tune with Life’s extravagant beauty and diversity.
