Clare is an artist and homesteader, which is why a lot of her paintings and sculpture are about normal people doing their daily grind. Her bright colors and strong outlines always draw me in to look closely.
I first met Clare at the Fraser Lake Library, and when I ran into her there at an “Open Mike” day (REALLY COOL CONCEPT) I had to corner her and ask about new paintings.
Clare is currently working on still-life paintings of the buildings and rooms at the Ft. St. James Heritage site. She had a worker pose for her in the clothing you would expect from the time period.
