The Chandelier Tree - Claire Jacobs
6 Campbell Street, Portland, ON
In Claire's gallery, situated in beautiful Portland where you look out onto the Big Rideau, you will see many of her original paintings shown here as well as prints and notecards. You may be greeted by her two sweet Havanese fur babies, Chewbacca and Capone.
Claire's art work covers a wide range of subject matter as she is influenced by so much all around her. Her mediums of choice are oils and watercolour with recent 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, having come to recognize that she looks for you to enter the painting and feel, experience or create your own story. And so a connection is created............
With over fifteen years art experience, Claire remains a forever emerging artist believing the learning journey 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. .
