Public Spaces

Art in public spaces creates a collective attitude, inspiration, and has been shown to reduce stress. Clare has created scenic and mixed media murals for several public spaces in Kentucky. Her murals are a permanent addition to the UofL Health Care Outpatient Center and the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital. Each project invites collaboration with her client.

Corporate Art

Corporate art collections help support local artists, provide a welcoming environment to customers, invigorate colleagues as well as define specific areas. Clare's murals and paintings are collected by several area corporate businesses, such as Brown-Foreman, Stites & Harbison and Waterfront Park Place. Clare works with clients to provide a unique look for their space.

Residential Spaces

Clare’s fine art murals create a sense of space in the room and allow individuals to set the tone for their unique residential setting, such as a bathroom, dining area or bedroom. Often painted in veils of color, these murals bring a feeling of light and openness into a room or area. Dining rooms offer ideal opportunity to display the optimum effect.

Studio Paintings

Along with commissions and large site specific artwork Clare also creates original paintings of all sizes in her studio. Examples can be viewed on the gallery page. Feel free to contact Clare to learn more about original artwork or high quality giclée reproductions. Please call and arrange your studio visit!
