Claire creates images in oil and other media, exploring land and waterscapes, architecture, portraiture, still life, and the animal kingdom. She works from life (plein air) whenever possible, celebrating natural forms and patterns, with attention to composition, color, light and creative expression. Her favorite subjects are local and from personal experience, celebrating the special places, people and creatures that nurture and inspire. She is now venturing into oil markers, gold leafing, scratchboard, enameling, various 3D media and public art.
Claire is also an architect and splits her time between McCall & Boise.
