My name is Claire and I am a mixed media artist based in Calgary. I am surrounded by the stunning natural beauty of Alberta and take inspiration from the mountains, rivers and lakes that surround me to create beautiful, unique works of art. Although I enjoy working in different media, my primary love is working with glass, whether that be lampworking and fusing fine, Italian glass or creating micro mosaics with glass seed beads.
My work is a continuing evolutional exploration of my ideas, therefore each piece is unique, made to my own design in my studio and finished to a high standard by me, using only the best quality materials.
Thank you for stopping by and taking a glimpse into my journey with me. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy making it.
You can view and purchase some of my works on Etsy
Please email me if you would like to enquire about other available work and commissions.
