Claire Desjardins is an award-winning abstract painter. Originally from Montreal, she now lives in the natural beauty of the Laurentians, an hour north of the city, where she paints in her art studio, most days.
Claire’s artworks have appeared in major motion pictures and TV series. She has often painted for charity, sharing the stage with the likes of popular bands Blue Rodeo and Randy Bachman. In August 2017, she will live-paint on stage while 80s super group Styx rocks out. She will auction off the final piece, and donate 100% of the proceeds to charity.
Besides creating art, Claire also teaches painting workshops in both Canada and the US, and collaborates with companies such as US retailer, Anthropologie, and tech giant, Microsoft, adding her colourful artwork to their mix. Her designs are available on apparel through Nuvango.com, and on tech accessories through GelaSkins.com.
She sells her original artworks on her web site, and is represented by galleries in Canada and in the US.
