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.

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

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

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! Save

A Totally Random Post Popping Out Of Nowhere:

  • Geek Things
    For my 50 th birthday, I got spoiled rotten, I got a smartphone to listen to Spotify in the car and a car stereo to play the content from the smartphone. No more listening to the same CD tracks over and over, then cutting the sound down with relief to enjoy a sullen silence. I love music, I've always listened to a ton of them. I love exploring and discovering new artists. I also got the GoPro 7. Well... this is my gift to myself (on top of all the other things). Yesterday, I took a few videos and I'm impressed. I didn't try particularly hard and I am new to all these settings, but I know now which settings I want. I spent the whole afternoon figuring out how to open the box (it is very confusing), watching lots of video tutorials, struggling with the bluetooth updating process, the waterproof case, etc (you got the picture). So at the end of the afternoon, I was ready to give it a try, took the girls for a walk and then... came the sea fog. It was beautiful though but the sun disappeared quickly. Very quickly. Here are two pictures: My Punk girls: https://vimeo.com/340724967 https://vimeo.com/340757622 I love the sparkles on the water. I also like the moment I near the water, it feels like I'm seamlessly drifting above the water, like in a dream. The stabilisation is really impressive, it is so smooth! The videos took a long time to edit and convert. The sharp setting on the camera is a bit too much for me, but I reduced it since then. I think I'm going to have loads of fun! And the camera is insanely light, which is what I wanted. In the morning, I took the girls to one of my favourite places. I love the woods, this is by far my favourite environment. Pixie chilling out (it was warmish) All this glorious greenery is so welcoming, like open arms... Pixie hats We sat there at the top of the slope for a while, just taking in... everything. The water is so clear. The sunlight sparkling among the reeds: It was so warm in the early morning, I opened the entrance door of my house to let the girls enjoy their favourite TV channel : The Outside World. They do bark at everything, passing people, birds and who knows what else, and when I tell them to stop, they just keep on. On the other hand, if I threaten to close the door, they grow suddenly very quiet. They understand more than they let on. My clever but very stubborn girls:
