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

That’s his name. I hope Barbara won’t mind . This is my first needle felting experience, I had done a bit of wet felting last year and I promised myself to try this craft once more in depth. To dress this little goblin, I can’t believe I actually learned to knit and embroider. Normally I have no patience with needles. But I was swept from my feet right into a whirlwind of creativity, and it felt wonderful. And who would have thought that goblins could be fashion victims ? It’s like felt and embroidery belong together.
Once again, I broke some rules and mixed the two techniques, wet felting and needle felting. Wet felting goes much faster but the needle is better for details. Overall, I found needle felting really time consuming and very difficult, especially when it comes to faces. I’m surprised I managed to get rid of all the poke marks. I found out that past a certain stage, it was better to cut all the fuzzies with some small scissors.
I’m eager to keep on the felting adventure but I have to finish first the painting I’m working on. And there is also the ceramic of course.
A special thank you to Lune for giving me a starter kit !
This is bliss. Even Loki is in a contemplative mood. I am overwhelmed with joy, the snow has melted at last, revealing treasures of intricate patterns of rocks and moss. I feel like taking into picture everything I see.
The working season has started for me so alas there will be less time for creativity but nevertheless, my head’s full of projects. I get up every morning at 4am in order to go for a long walk with Loki and paint. Soon, I’ll also be working with felting. I love felt. I can hardly wait! And ceramics are also on my program this summer (of course).
