Hi! Thank you for visiting my site :) My name is Claire and I am a self taught artist living and working on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. I work with watercolour, gouache, and pen and ink, and much of my work involves looking at the interconnectivity of humans and animals. I aim to depict these connections as beautiful, destructive, hopeful, and helpless. I am using my artistic voice to speak up about the environmental crisis that we face today, and hopefully you will think differently about the world and our place in it by my little (and sometimes large) paintings. My work is often described as whimsical, but don’t be fooled by my colours, you can often find macabre undertones which bring these faces of conflict and connections to life.
When I am not painting you can find me running trails, logging carbon-free miles surfing along the coast, and cooking delicious plant-based meals with my software developer husband!
I love hearing from you! Don’t hesitate to reach out, seriously :)
