Eve Chabot was born in Drummondville in 1970 and she live in Montreal since 1988. After studying: in arts, music and 2D and 3D multimedia design, she began to explore by herself with specialized magazines, the possibilities Digital paint tools and softwares such as Photoshop ™ and Painter ™, while working as web designer and webmaster.
It was in 2006, influenced by romantic, pre-Raphaelite and Renaissance painters, that she realized and exhibited her first works realized with digital painting, of a figurative and classical style with her favorite theme: «Fantasy» .
Last year, she began to learn, deepening her knowledge and increase her technical abilities with harp, at the same time, she returned to a traditional art medium, watercolour. And to this day, his illustrations, always inspired by his immediate world and his spirituality, are associated with the music of his harp.
For many years I have explored the digital painting medium to render the light and the nobility that I have always admired in classical painting while seeking to translate them into a contemporary style. To this day, even if I still paint with digital tools (Preference for software: ArtRage ™), a need for contact with the material brings me back gradually towards a traditional medium that I particularly like, watercolour. All the more, music takes up a lot of space in my creative process. I often have “stereo color” vision or vice versa. And, with the harp, I can translate this phenomenon.
With my analog or digital brushes and with my strings, I explore the universes of Fantasy to reveal my creativity without restraint. To find the inspiration: I take a lot of pictures, I make sketches with pencils, I explore the Celtic repertory with the harp and, Regularly, I join a Session.
I was a dreamy and curious little girl. I became a sensitive and contemplative adult. Through my artistic work, I want to create an emotion by bringing a modern look influenced by my time, my immediate world and my spirituality on sources rich in inspiration: folklore, traditional music, tales, legends, myths And beliefs of human civilizations of all times and all worlds. Finally, my approach could be summarized in a few words:
“Create an Imaginary that delights the mortal heart.”
