My artist name is "Chaveron" : a tribute to my grand father who was a talented artist with a big heart, I adore him. He saved my life when I was 3years old (Chaveron : Charles x Veronique )
I am French from Provence but I have been living in New Zealand since 2005.
Since 1991 in France I painted "bysantine icons" (for some town as Samary sur mer or for Toulon arsenal 's church or for people) I really enjoyed the technic and all the different steps including working on wood, making my own gesso and tempera (egg yolk,vinegar, water and pigments) I love colours!
Now I use the same technique but for modern contemporary painting .. It's different but I love it and I hope you enjoy it too.
