Jocelyne Chauveau was born in the Centre of France. There, she lived in contact with nature durind her childhood, marked by a passion for the arts, music and drawing essentially. She also developed her tastes and her art interests, and Nature still guides her works as a painter today.
She firstly studied classical languages (latin and greek) at university, before turning to Art History and Archeology (with a Master in Contemporary Art in Paris I – Sorbonne), and worked in literature and edition.
In the 1990s, she took up drawing again, and discovered watercolour with some masters (Cao Bei-An, Roland Palmaerts and Marie-Line Montécot). With passion, softness and poetry, the artist depicts various subjects, from the human figure, portraits and nudes, painted in wet-on-wet, to the abstract landscape. The colours and contrasts create a succession of rythms that suggest, more or less accurately, the essence of her work.
Jocelyne Chauveau is also workshop instructor during art fairs and exhibitions. She has been taking part in many exhibitions in France, Belgium, Swiss, Japan, Italy, Canada and USA and has won many awards since the early 2000’s (Fondation Taylor’s member in 2006).
