Christiane Lavedan is a visual artist and researcher, born in Toulouse, France. Lavedan's work draws
from Eastern philosophy and brings a renewal to Western art.
Her vision, as expressed through her work, shows that
"We do not belong to this world; we are passing through.
Harm no living creature; we are one. Live on a global scale;
love thy mother planet instead of using it."
She has been included in Outstanding People of the 20th
Century by the International Biographical Centre, England; Who's Who in America since 1999; Who's Who of American Women since 1998.
