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."
