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.
Widely published around the world as an illustrator, with more than 70 books translated into 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 was recently selected to exhibit at the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series semi-finals in Vancouver. In 2015 she received an Honourable Mention for 3X3, The Magazine of Contemporary Illustration, 12th Annual. She won popular acclaim for her 100 Trees in 100 Days project that same year.
She lives and works in Vancouver, Canada.
