Travel has been an important part of my life from a young age. Growing up traveling alongside my mother, an avid photographer, I quickly learned the value of taking photos to capture scenes and moments of inspiration from places I visit. I fell in love with the rush of nostalgia and energy that came with seeing a memory captured in 2D, and pictures became my favorite souvenir.

As an artist, I use what I learned as a child and collect photos as visual memories that serve as reference for my paintings. Through a combination of watercolor and gouache paint with pen detail, I capture moments from my travels in an effort to make viewers feel the joy that a trip to somewhere new brings from the comfort of their homes.

I invite my viewers to come with me as I stare in awe at a picturesque landscape, but also as I pause to admire the layers of texture that make up an old roof. The purpose of my art is to provide an escape, add color to a home, and show people the world through my eyes: finding beauty around every corner.

Originally from Atlanta, GA, I'm now based in Brooklyn, NY. I graduated from Parsons the New School for Design in 2018 with a BFA in fashion design. After graduating, I chose to pursue a career in print design as a way to express my lifelong love for art within the fashion industry. Through starting my creative small business, I created a place where I can further my artistic practice and share my love for travel with the world. | @clairecolemanstudio | Artist
