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, my sweet Papillon girls, Lucy and Pixie and the spirit of my border collie, Loki. 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.

Oils on Ceramic

Traduction Française ici I finished painting a few brooches with oils, and I like them. I say brooches, but actually they could also work as pendants, or even glued on furniture or on a wall as decorative accents. And my favourite: I won’t sell those, I will wear them or give them as presents. But when I come back from

Acid Dyes

Traduction Française ici I think I’m getting better at it. I spent most yesterday dyeing wool for my felting. I used Jacquard acid dyes and previously when I tried, I always ended up with some bits not having taken the dye at all. This time, I tapped the wool with my fingers to help the dye spread. I’m quite pleased

A Walk

Traduction Française ici Today, almost two weeks since my dog passed away, I went for a walk. I was apprehensive since in 13 years, I never went for a walk without him, and I miss him so much. But it went fine. It was a lovely walk and I’m sure Loki came along, It feels like spring but don’t be fooled,

Walter Moers

Walter Moers is my favourite author. I’m totally besotted with his works. He’s made it hard to enjoy other authors. I always had trouble finding books which were more than OK, but since Moers, it’s got worse. I’ve read his books too fast in spite of the promise I made to myself to make them last. It’s not as if

The little bits of my paintings I love the most:

A Totally Random Post Popping Out From Nowhere:

  • Psyche
    psyche1 This is my third digital painting, I spent quite a while on it. It combines two different moods, moonlight, sunlight and, nested inside the trunk, my Blue Bird. I had great fun painting this, enhancing the lights step by step, following the paths over the bridge or past the Vila - a Slavic fairy - in the tree. Either way, you have to pass by the mysterious figure standing by the tree in the middle. This figure is Psyche. Her being is most radiant when she is veiled because no image comes to distract us. She is Soul, permeating everything around her, enchanting, or leading to madness if taken too literally. Psyche's sometimes represented as a moth or butterfly because she's a symbol of transformation. Perpetual transformation. To take Psyche as a guide is to unlearn everything, and be truthful to the inner spark, no matter what others might say. Ask for a direction of Psyche and you will see that she will reply by way of dreams. One thing I would like to do one day is to continue the painting on both sides. You can do that endlessly. But considering that a single painting takes me an average of 3 weeks, it would probably take me a whole year to build this world of paths. It'd be pretty cool though. [peekaboo_link name="bar"]Traduction ici [/peekaboo_link] [peekaboo_content name="bar"] C'est ma troisième peinture digitale, j'ai passé pas mal de temps dessus. Elle combine deux humeurs différentes, clair de lune et ensoleillé, avec entre les deux, dans le tronc, mon Oiseau Bleu. J'ai eu beaucoup de plaisir à peindre ceci, rehaussant les lumières étape par étape, suivant les sentiers au delà du pont ou au delà de la Vila - fée slave - dans l'arbre. Quel que soit le chemin, il vous faut passer par la figure se tenant devant l'arbre au milieu. C'est Psyché. Elle est encore plus radieuse lorsqu'elle est voilée car alors aucune image ne nous distrait de son essence. Elle est l'Âme, imprégnant tout autour d'elle, enchanteresse ou ensorceleuse, pouvant mener à la folie si prise trop littéralement. Psyché est quelquefois representée par l'image du papillon car elle est un symbole de transformation. Transformation perpétuelle. Prendre Psyché comme guide implique quelquefois de tout désapprendre, et d'être en priorité fidèle à l’étincelle intérieure, quoique puissent dire les autres. Demandez une direction à Psyché et elle vous répondra par le biais des rêves. Une chose que j'aimerais faire un jour serait de continuer la peinture des deux cotés. On peut faire ça indéfiniment. Mais étant donné qu'une seule peinture me prend en moyenne trois semaines, cela me prendrait probablement toute une année pour explorer en peinture tous les autres sentiers de cette forêt. Ça serait vraiment chouette néanmoins.
