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.

Désastre complet

Mon dieu… que dire? Ça n’est pas allé dans la direction désirée. Le travail de la céramique était chouette, aussi passionnant que d’ordinaire. Et puis j’ai appliqué les peintures sous couverte, tache ennuyeuse puisque je n’aime pas particulièrement peindre avec des couleurs grisâtres et fourbes qui ne révèlent leur vraie teinte qu’apres la cuisson. Je les ai cuites (1040), puis

The Bewitched Sorceress

[peekaboo_link name=”bar”]Traduction ici [/peekaboo_link] [peekaboo_content name=”bar”]Bien, cette dernière peinture a été une longue aventure qui m’a menée sur des chemins inconnus, mais j’ai beaucoup aimé l’expérience. Grace à la mosaïque, j’ai eu la chance de pouvoir dire tout ce que j’avais à dire sur cette ensorceleuse ensorcelée. Je crois que c’est une chouette manière de raconter une histoire, en la fragmentant.

Haunted? Enchanted!

[peekaboo_link name=”bar”]Traduction ici [/peekaboo_link] [peekaboo_content name=”bar”] J’ai rêvé que je travaillais comme gardienne dans un immense manoir dans ma région (en réalité, il n’y a pas de manoir où je vis). La famille était partie pour une dizaine de jours et je devais vivre là, au rez-de-chaussée. Le manoir était superbement meublé d’antiquités. Je fis l’expérience d’une activité paranormale durant

The little bits of my paintings I love the most:

A Totally Random Post Popping Out Of Nowhere:

  • A Goblin
    I have learnt many things while taking this new direction with my latest goblin. I used some fusible interfacing paper in order to stop my hand woven fabric from fraying while sewing the costume but it didn't work out, my fabric being too thick and too loose. Sewing was a bore. God, I hate sewing. I finished with a white glue and it worked just as fine and actually better: less fraying and more control. But also, quicker! Some bits are still felted, like the shoes, the hands, the antlers and the parts sticking out on the shoulders. I would have never been able to do it in a neat and rigid way without the help of some clear matte varnish. I am really glad I found out this trick. The face is made of paperclay (papier maché) and I'm not sure I like this material entirely. I might try with my ceramic clay next time but without firing it. The clay I use actually contains paper fibers and it is fairly solid, even unfired. I'll have to see how it shrinks around the glass eyes. For the hair (I love the hair!), I dyed some tencel fibers a dark brown and it became all curly... and blonde, ha!ha! I guess it doesn't take too well the acid dye then, but I love this Venetian blonde. I also incorporated one of my ceramic beads, the bird. I have to make some more. All in all, I am pleased about this new direction, and very, very inspired. Now let me introduce this little goblin who is very much into books and is a bit shy.. Save
