Claire is a Los Angeles native now residing in Oakland, CA. Both cities play an integral role in her art practice, which investigates the division of urban blight, nostalgia, and yearning found in urban landscapes. By painting and drawing people or places that hold personal and often universal references to sentimental memories, she attempts to uncover and unravel these remembrances. Claire received her BA in Art Practice from University of California, Berkeley and has since shown her work at Salt Fine Art Gallery, The University Club of San Francisco, and the NIAD Art Center.
