Catherine Dhavernas was born in France and grew up wherever her father’s career took her – Hong Kong, Ottawa, Beijing and Geneva. She relocated to Australia from Canada in 2017 to change academic careers from French literature and philosophy to medical humanities practices in aged care.
Of the stepfathers she has had, it was the professional Paris-based artist who taught her the possibilities of painting early on and exposed her to a full range of classical, historical, modernist, abstract and experimental styles of painting, including his own, while bringing her along to his favorite museums and galleries.
In her own work, Catherine tends to focus on themes and imagery that depart from the chaos and busyness of urban life and the digital world. Hoping to spend more time painting, she recently left Brisbane for the Sunshine Coast and is appreciating another facet of what Australia has to offer.
