The Chandelier Tree - Claire Jacobs
6 Campbell Street, Portland, ON
- Studio A -
In Claire's gallery, situated in beautiful Portland where you look out onto the Big Rideau, you will see some of her original paintings shown here as well as limited edition prints and notecards. You may be greeted by her two sweet Havanese fur babies, Chewbacca and Capone.
Claire's art covers a wide range of subject matter as she is influenced by all that is around her. Her mediums of choice are oil and watercolour with play exploration in the world of acrylic and resin flow art. Through use of vibrant colour, light and movement, Claire strives to create images that are pleasing to her and works to draw you into her paintings so that you may feel, experience or create your own story.
With over fifteen years art experience, Claire believes her learning experience never ends. She is a willing slave to the visual stimulation, the emotional engagement and the mental challenge experienced when she paints. Primarily self taught, Claire has also attended many selected community and college art classes and artist workshops. Several of her paintings have found permanent homes across the country, in the US, in Finland and in England and some of her works have received awards at art shows in Canada and the US. Claire is active in a number of art groups and associations in and around the Rideau Lakes area.
Claire also takes every opportunity to cultivate and enhance art appreciation in Rideau Lakes by bringing the community to the art and artists to the community. Art is important; it nourishes the soul.
