Born and raised in Versailles, France, Claire was schooled in Paris and obtained a Baccalaureate with distinction. She moved to South Africa and studied Law at the University of the Witwatersrand.

Today Claire resides in South Africa with her family and exhibits throughout South Africa and the Western Cape. In addition, Claire has exhibited on a very international platform. From the notorious "Sandy Lane" in Barbados to the creative streets of Chelsea New York City, Claire's works are exhibited from Cape Town and across the Western Cape, to Franschhoek, Hermanus and Stellenbosch.

She has been featured in publications like Habitat, 'The Collector's Guide to Art and Artists in South Africa. Offshore, Claire has also exhibited at Agora Art Gallery in New York City, United States and Montreal, Canada. She was awarded the title of 'Best international emerging artist of 2013'.

In her words, "The more I yield to my vision, the more it seems to make sense. My freedom is joy. Even in sadness, love in colour will prevail. Dare to love, dare to splash, never shy from your cobalt blues, magentas, or deep roses."
