Currently a resident of Charleston, SC, Jocelyn Chateauvert was raised and educated in Iowa City. At the University of Iowa she studied Spanish, dance and design, earning a BA. Her MFA from UI emphasized metalworking, handmade paper and sculpture. After teaching in London at Middlesex Polytechnic and establishing herself as an artist in San Francisco, she returned to Iowa where she met her husband David Puls, a contemporary furniture maker. Chateauvert is a current recipient of a South Carolina Arts Commission Craft Fellowship as well as a finalist for two 2004 Niche Magazine Awards. She has been featured in various publications, including Ornament, American Craft, Metalsmith and American Style. She participated in the prestigious Smithsonian Craft Show earlier this year.
Papermaking has been at the core of Chateauvert's creative work for many years. She incorporated her papers in unusual ways, first with sterling silver jewelry and later into more sculptural yet functional forms that are lit from within.
