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

My Digital Art


I don’t want to hear about sewing before a while. I’ve been working too much on this sewing machine, I’m totally saturated. But I have now a few nice clothes. They are very warm. Perhaps too warm. I might have to move to Svalbard. Although I heard it’s not as cold as it used to be. I guess I just have to move to Yakutia then. But I don’t think my girls would enjoy that. A vest and a mantle:


Hygge Clothes

I finally made two garments that I can actually wear ( I won’t show you the others), a tunic and a mantle:

The shapes are actually plain and simple. I should have opted for this design from the beginning, it would have saved me some precious fabrics. I’m going to stick to these personal templates from now on, introducing just a few very small variations here and there but without taking any risk.


Composite Weave

I was weaving with King Cole Country Tweed yarn and although I like this shade very much, there was no magic.

It just didn’t work with my merino warp yarn. So after 50 cm, I decided to try something else. I think this particular tweed yarn will work better with a dark brown warp. I’ve come back to composing with one main yarn and lots of different ornamental yarns here and there. This is my favourite type of weaving. And I also get to add shiny things! Only 10 days til I travel to France for two weeks. I’ll be very busy with sewing and pretty much nothing else (but I still want to watch Wallace and Gromit again, I’ve developed a fondness for these characters). The good news is that I’m getting now slightly better at sewing (I’ve also simplified the hand-made template that I use).


East Wind

I found a stretch of road sheltered from the icy east wind today, thanks to my driving license (and the mountains…). I often think back to last year at the same period and all the self-doubt, the real trouble I had learning to drive. And it went on until June when after a second attempt, I finally passed the exam. I’m so glad it’s over. I’ve become better at driving. But I’m not so sure I’ll ever get better at sewing. This is a disaster. I might have to sew straight on the dummy, perhaps it will give me more control because every time I’m on this sewing machine, I do weird (unspeakable) things. I could try to fit the garment with a stapler. But of course, it will take far more time. What drives me mad is that sewing requires so much overwhelming precision. But as long as I find a plan B, there is still hope for me.
