Artist Statement

 

My goal as an artist is to bring joy to others as I share my creative works.

My dream is to have my work enjoyed and recognized by others. I love the satisfaction of putting my ideas on canvas and watch them come to life.

My inspiration comes from people’s journeys and stories. I enjoy exploring the human mind and soul from people around the globe and incorporating it into my art.  I love colors, their intensity and vibrations and juxtaposing unexpected combinations of them. Additionally, my feelings and dreams also inspire my art. I use authentic magazines, newspapers and postcards from days of old in my work.  I use different techniques to produce my art:  acrylic paint, ink, stamps, stencils and markers.

Creating art is my way of escaping into an ideal world leaving all troubles behind.  Truly, art is my best friend.  When I draw, my feelings are held within the shapes, colors and images allowing my emotionally-charged  thoughts to be reflected from within the paint.

 

Artist Biography

Aline Chevalier was born in 1970 in Annonay, France. Aline has been creating art since a small child. Her mother used to say:  “Give scissors and paper to Aline and she can create for hours.”  When she was at school and during her professional life, Aline always found time to paint. In 2011, when she moved to Mexico from France, she decided to dedicate herself completely to her passion.

She has had the opportunity to work with Juan Rodriguez Flores and was inspired by the bright and colorful art of Mexican muralists, including Diego Rivera and José Orozco.

Aline recently settled in the United States where she joined a group of mixed media artists. In both Mexico and the US, Aline has shown her work in art exhibitions since 2013; and, has received several awards.
