PAINTING + MIXED MEDIA
An award-winning abstract painter, Claire Desjardins is originally from Montreal, and now lives in the natural beauty of the Laurentians, an hour north of the city. She paints in her secluded art studio, most days.
Claire’s artworks have appeared in major motion pictures and TV series. She often live paints for charity fundraisers, having shared the stage with popular bands such as Styx, Blue Rodeo and Randy Bachman. She has taught numerous abstract painting workshops across North America.
Besides creating art, Claire just launched her signature collection of women’s apparel under her own label, Claire Desjardins by Carré Noir, in early 2019. She collaborates with companies such as US retailer, Anthropologie, and tech giants Microsoft and Samsung, adding her colorful artwork to their mixes.
She shows her work regularly in art fairs and galleries in major cities across Canada and the US.
