With the matrimony of emotion, cubes and color, CLAIR shares her inspiration from
happy, dreamy moments in life that we can all relate to, but so easily forget.
A first love, a last love, a memory, lovers sipping wine, being enlightened, inspired
by sweet music… those moments are ours to remember – but the speed of time can erase
the memories we all take for granted. CLAIR tries to capture a snapshot of that moment
on canvas. Each painting has a feeling; each feeling tells a story. Her eyes in the
paintings allow the viewer to reach in and let you connect. She feels they are the
windows to ones soul.
CLAIR’s technique is a delicate blend of color, technique, imagination, and cubism
meant to evoke mystery and emotion. Her goal is to challenge the viewer’s eye and
mind, as you get lost in a three-dimensional world of people passion and beauty.
Influences in her work include Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Modigliani, and Kandinsky
– hence the bright colors, dreamy people, and cubist perspectives.
Raised in upstate NY, CLAIR drew her way through those cold winter days, then soon
after high school she moved to Virginia where she got a BFA in painting/design at
Old Dominion University. She had enough cold to last a lifetime and now has found
home in sunny San Diego where she lives with her husband Eric, her cattle dog Ringo
and their newest addition to their family, baby Ayla.
