The People of Chattacon 

All guests of honor, panelists, performers, presenters, artists or any other individual who may present in some way at Chattacon are booked in good faith and we have their guarantee that they will appear when we announce they will be at the convention. However, unforeseen events (illness, family emergencies or production work) may cause a particular guest to cancel. 

Christine Avery

Christine Avery is an art-maker, a lover of beauty, bones, feathers and poetry. She uses primarily traditional media, from colored pencils to oil paints, to create scenes of imaginative realism.

She is a raptor rehabilitator, trainer and federally licensed falconer who lives and works with birds year-round, often keeping them in the studio with her while she creates. Her passion for the wild is a common theme in her artwork.

She lives in Dayton, Ohio with her husband, Tim Waggoner, who is an award-winning author, a teacher and a constant source of encouragement in her creative endeavors. She is a new face in the world of illustration, having premiered her work at the Virtual World Fantasy Convention art show at the end of 2020.
