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, 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.

My Digital Art

Ulrick the Goblin

Traduction Française ici
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.

  1. Well, I don’t mind of course… though your Ulrick has not very much in common with mine ! Except that it looks like a very nice creature !

  2. Your felted goblin is so lovely, great job! Have a very, very creative week. Or maybe the whole month 🙂
    Best wishes from stormy Warsaw.
