#CARVENSEENBY Christina Zimpel

For its Advent Calendar, Carven gave carte blanche to 20 artists, each of whom was asked to revisit a key item in the 2018 cruise collection. To revisit the asymetrical Chambray dress, Serge Ruffieux commissioned the Christina Zimpel, and artist famous for her spare black ink portraits. Who are you ?
I am from Australia, I lived in Paris for 6 years and I now I'm based in Brooklyn. I have worked as artistic director for such magazines as Vogue US and Vogue Australia. I was also a studio director for my husband, photographer Patric Shaw. I have two sons. I have been painting and drawing for some time now - 2 years - I've finally found my passion!
What does this pre-Christmas period mean to you ?
As a child, I have always loved this period, and it still is the case today. My children have always had Advent calendars in Paris, but when I was a child in Australia, I had never heard of that! It's a pity because they're very funny!
What would be your ultimate artistic dream for the year 2018 ?
To Continue being lucky enough to do what I do, to have more people following my work, and to be free to create ever more beautiful images.
