About Me

Christiane Papé

Painting is my "joie de vivre"

I am a lover of nature, constantly inspired by what I see.  Whether with my floral compositions, landscapes, or abstracts, I transpose my perceptions of the beautiful colors, shapes, and movements that nature shares with us onto the canvas extending beyond the mere visual interpretation. 

I work with a variety of different media such as acrylic, pastel, collage, and oil. I spent over 35 years in Manhattan and moved back to my birth country of Switzerland 10 years ago. My works are in a variety of museums, private and public art collections, storefronts like Saks Fifth Avenue in New York, and have shown in many galleries in Europe and the US. See my curriculum vitae for more information. 

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products. I hope you enjoy my work!
