Claire has always loved creating. She was blessed with a loving family that encouraged and cultivated that love of art right from the beginning. Some of her fondest memories include the many hours spent attending a European style art school beginning at age 11 where she began to truly discover her voice through art. Later, she attended a charter high school that specialized in art and, four years after that, received a Bachelor's Degree in graphic design from Montana State University. Although Claire's real passion lies in watercolor, her creativity is prevalent through all areas of her life. She especially enjoys graphic design, photography, and playing the guitar. One of her favorite things about being an artist is the ability to see the world in a different way. The thoughtful process of painting encourages attention to the tiny beautiful details that are all around us, but often go unnoticed.
Claire loves to go on adventures with her husband and two children and is always looking for new inspiration for her art.
