Who I am

Christine Wingerter in Paris Pont Alexandre III


My name is Christine Wingerter.

Formely, I stayed in Provence, where my job was to restore and sell antiques.

Now, I live in Auvergne, in the center of France.

When I am not restoring my old house, taking care of my garden and pets, I paint, listening classic music and jazz.


I am attracted to Art since my childhood and always will.

My creations are the fruit of this love and of my acquaintances as an antiques dealer and restorer as well.


Publishing on my website, I wish to share the pleasure and satisfaction that Art, manual and imaginative skill, can give everyday to people loving Art and beautiful objects.
