About Claire

Claire is an expressionist painter known for her stylized landscapes and florals. Inspired by her artist father, Claire began painting professionally in 2009 and had her first solo exhibition in 2013. She has since exhibited in New York, Toronto and Vancouver, and her work has been featured on the cover of a national arts and culture magazine. She has received commissions from Burt’s Bees and Wiley Press USA, and has work licensed in the USA.
