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. I live with my British soulmate,… Continue Reading

My Digital Art

A Spinning Wheel

A spinning wheel is on its way. It’s a modern one, not the fairy tale kind, but it’s really good to make art yarns (fantasy yarn) and what attracted me was also the possibility to paint it. The wheel itself is flat, it doesn’t have any spoke. Today I’ve been drafting a mandala for my wheel. It’d be nice to see it turn. I will paint it with oils and add a bit of glitter which will sparkle when turning.

This is just a quick draft of what I plan to do:

Workstation

Back to oil painting for a while. I have four trees to paint for my altar. I renew the paints on this palette very very seldom, it takes ages to dry because in between each use, I place it in my freezer. My tubes will last me … years!

This is my workbench. I paint on my lap:

It is actually manageable. And out of reach from the dogs. I also have a small stand on the side for blending my colors.

A singular Tree

Probably from Wonderland. I like appliqués and I wanted to try something else with my felting experiments. I dyed a wool batt (like a blanket of fibers), shading carefully my colors and needle felted it (next time, I’ll try to wet felt it straight). Then I wet felted it. I didn’t use any varnish… because it’s expensive. Instead I glued two layers together but left unglued the bottom to stuff the trunk with cheap fibers. Of course, I used some quality wool and nylon fibers for the parts that stick out through the holes. I like the strange fruits (wire shaped in a spiral, stuffed with wool). It turned out a bit better than expected. Although, I had to stiffen the tree with a wire in the back in the end, but it’s discreet. I think I’ll take a break from felting now.

A Little Felted Tree

Still exploring ways of using felt. I used clear matte varnish for the branches and the trunk again. I glued the base on a piece of glazed ceramic.I think I have a brilliant idea for the next tree!
