Born and raised in richmond, virginia, CLAIRE has been creating some form of art for as long as she can remember and has no intention of stopping!
after receiving her BFA with a concentration in painting from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia, she continued her work as a freelance artist slowly building her portfolio and clientele from all over the states. Over the years, claire has grown as an artist adding several forms of artistic expression to include capturing nostalgic landscapes, DRAMATIC STILL LIVES AND FLORALS and portraiture of people, pets and houses.
Aside from her commission based work, Claire continues to build her own porfolio of oil paintings. She is always Inspired by BEAUTY AND the many DRAMATIC effects that lighting CAN HAVE ON ANY GIVEN SUBJECT, so she thrives to capture and share that experience with hopes that the viewer will either relate or simply appreciate the finished piece. Her main goal as an artist is to fill her viewers homes with work that will bring them as much joy as she gets when she creates them.
As of recently, Claire has been involved in helping and assisting a fellow artist, Naomi McCavitt of Thicket Design, to create her one of a kind, custom murals in both private and public spaces. This experience has allowed claire to explore yet another facet of creativity and she is very excited about where this outlet can take her. Stay tuned as she is working on painting tastefully fun murals in her own home!
claire is very enthusiastic in her love of all things artistic and hopes to always be able to feed the endless urge to create. CONTACT HER FOR ANY PROJECT AND SHE WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO CREATE AN ORIGINAL PIECE JUST FOR YOU.
