Claudine Gévry was born in Granby, Québec. She spent most of her life immersed in Montréal's rich artistic and cultural diversity. It was there that she studied Fine Arts at the Cégep du Vieux Montréal and Graphic Design at the Université du Québec à Montréal, both institutions known for their eclectic and bohemian artistic tendencies. Art has been a strong motivating force throughout her life.
Claudine's art is abstract and whimsical, nature being her primary guide. Her extensive travels to places ranging from European cultural centers to some of the most remote and wild places on earth has profoundly influenced her art.
Widely published around the world as an illustrator, with books translated into more than 12 languages, she has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the industry such as HarperCollins, Penguin Random House, Reader's Digest, Simon & Schuster and Top That Publishing (UK).

Claudine is now pursuing a career as a fine art artist as well, wanting to divide her time between her two passions. She won third prize in the Purely Pastel exhibit in Vancouver in 2017. Following that, the American magazine Pastel Journal selected her for their article “Artists to Watch” (December 2017 issue). In 2016 she was selected to exhibit at the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series semi-finals in Vancouver.
She lives and works in Vancouver, Canada.
