Claire Desjardins is a Canadian artist living and working in Gore, Quebec. Working primarily in painting, her formally driven work focuses on gesture and colour, characterised by energetic, animated brush strokes and bold palettes. Her work is both highly abstract and highly personal; it is a dynamic expression of feelings or reactions of which she is consciously unaware.
Claire regularly exhibits her work in galleries and art fairs throughout North America. In addition, she frequently teaches painting workshops and has served as a jury member on several national art prizes.
Besides creating art, in early 2019, Claire launched her signature collection of women's apparel under her label, Claire Desjardins. She also collaborates with companies, such as US retailer Anthropologie, and tech giants Microsoft and Samsung, adding her colourful artwork to their mixes.
