Claire Desjardins

Claire Desjardins comes from a long line of artists and grew up in Montreal, Canada. She worked for many years as a graphic designer and was ensconced in a life of technology and marketing. In 2011, she gave up a regular pay cheque to pursue her love of painting full time. She now has a studio in the Laurentians, and hour north of Montreal, and is represented by galleries in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa and Charlotte, North Carolina. Claire teaches painting workshops in both Canada and in the US, and has received grants to attend artist residencies at the Vermont Studio Center in 2011 and 2013, and the Da Wang Culture Highland artist residency in southeastern China in 2013. Her work can be found in both private and corporate collections around the world.
