Claire is a resident of Sewlicky, PA, but grew up in California. Her love of art began early, often drawing as child. It was an art teacher in middle school that first showed her how to properly shade, and create the illusion of form to create a more realistic drawing. Claire earned a business degree from the University of New Mexico, and began working as a graphic designer. Still interested in art and drawing she began taking classical instruction, which lead her to study at the Art Institute of Florence in Italy. This is where she found her love of oil painting.

Claire has traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East, studying art, culture, and history. She paints still life’s, landscapes, and animals, but flowers are her favorite. She is drawn to bright, bold colors. She uses soft brush strokes to smooth and refine edges, resulting in a beautiful and soft, yet bright painting.
