    Painting in my studio in beautiful Gore, Quebec!!

    Canadian abstract painter, Claire Desjardins, paints in her art studio, surrounded by nature. She is moved by what she sees around her, on a daily basis, and draws inspiration from natural forms she observes around her.

    Live painting on stage with Annakin Slayd and Randy Bachman

    During this live painting performance, I shared the stage with Annakin Slayd and super group Styx (August, 2017). At the end of the performance, the painting was signed by the band members of Styx, and then auctioned off to the highest bidder. 100% of the money was donated to help local charities. Video is 3:39 minutes long.

    Painting large: the making of Under the Electric Candelabra

    Painting large: the making of Under the Electric Candelabra

    I love to paint large canvases and murals. I find it very liberating to have a huge space in front of me, on which I can make whatever marks I feel like! When a painting is VERY big, I sometimes have to staple it to the wall, so that I can stand back and see my progress. In this photo, I'm painting "Under the Electric Candelabra", which when finally stretched, measured 65" tall by 118" wide (3:39 minutes).

    Painting in my studio, in the Laurentians

    Painting in my studio, in the Laurentians

    I live and work in Gore, Quebec. My studio is set on the edge of the woods, across the way from our home. When I look out my big windows, I see and enjoy views of nature: the forest, my gardens, even a bit of our lake. It's very peaceful, and I usually play music while I work.

    Getting it out

    Getting it out

    When I teach my workshops, I usually do a demo for my students, and I talk out loud about my process. I explain what I am thinking, what I am doing, step by step. This is one painting that I worked on in that capacity.

    Contemporary art fair: The Artist Project, Toronto 2016

    Contemporary art fair: The Artist Project, Toronto 2016

    Welcome to my booth at The Artist Project in 2016, in Toronto. 2018 will be my fourth year attending this fair. I like to participate in these things, and have been trying out different ones, lately: Toronto, New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. As an artist, it's great to get the exposure, and it's fun to meet and talk to people who are interested in my artworks.

    Offering private critiques to students

    Offering private critiques to students

    This was a workshop I gave in Stowe, Vermont. During my sessions, I walk around the class, giving those students who want it, individual feedback on their work. Some workshop places let me bring my dogs: I have two soft-coated wheaten terriers, and they are very sweet!

    My painting workshop in Nantucket (Sept. 2016): I am the one holding the smallest painting of the group. My students wowed me, as they always do, with their individual, unique interpretations of workshop materials! The Nantucket stop was the last of 3 stops: my husband and I had just returned from our honeymoon in Iceland and Ireland. We stopped in Nantucket, for me to give this workshop, en route home. I met so many engaging, wonderful people, and saw a great deal of cultural richness and natural beauty. I felt very inspired!

    In my studio, in Southeastern China

    In my studio, in Southeastern China

    In 2013, I attended an artist residency is Shenzhen, China. I love traveling and meeting new and interesting people, and my China trip was a wonderful, enriching experience. Here's me starting a painting which I later called Come Home. Starting a fresh canvas is always a fun challenge! I like to block out the main parts of it, and then I go back and add more and more layers, and more and more details.
