Eve Chabot was born in Drummondville in 1970 and has lived in Montreal since 1988. After studying arts, music and 2D and 3D multimedia design, she has self-taught the technique of digital painting. In 2006, influenced by the Romantic, Pre-Raphaelite and Renaissance painters, she directed and exhibited her first works in digital painting, a figurative and classical style with her favorite theme: the Imaginary.
During the year 2016, she started harp lessons online, to develop her technical skills. And, at the same time, she renews and deepens her knowledge with a traditional medium, watercolor. And, to this day, always inspired by her immediate world and her spirituality, she prefers to work with the watercolor and / or the harp to realize figurative Fantasy artworks.

I have long been fascinated by the light and nobility that we find in classical painting. And on the other hand, I am attracted by the sounds of old instruments that we hear in folklore and traditional music.
My projects always start with a lot of research. I sketch with pencils, ink, watercolor and my digital tools. Then I will paint in watercolor and finish some compositions in a digital painting software (ArtRage ™). My illustrations are often associated with music. I will also improvise on the harp to translate what I hear and then compose the melody.
Finally, with the mediums I love: the watercolor and the harp, no matter if the result of my creativity is an illustration, a music or a video, my approach could be summed up in a few words:
“Create an Imaginary that delights the mortal heart.”
I was a dreamy and curious girl who has remained a sensitive and contemplative adult. Through my artistic work, I want to create an emotion by taking a modern look influenced by my time, my immediate universe and my spirituality on rich sources of inspiration: folklore, traditional music, tales, legends, myths and beliefs of human civilizations of all times and all worlds.
