"Being able to create beauty through music and art is a gift I am grateful for everyday" Clair

 

As a visual artist, Clair is inspired by color and contrast. Her work is imbued with both vibrancy and meditative calm. 

The natural world nourishes, inspires, and is of great interest to Clair.  As a yoga and meditation teacher for many years, Clair enjoyed helping others access their own innate sense of being.  Though she has retired from teaching, this work continues through her art and music.  Clair's work expresses joy and beauty with a focus on color and contrast.  A few years back, she was introduced to and became  mesmerized by the symbol, The Flower/Seed of Life.  Though she is interested in many themes, for about a year, this symbol became a meditation for her as well as the focus of her work.  She came across this quote (though she doesn't know who to attribute it to) ~ "They say the flower/seed of life is the blueprint of the universe and key to the eternal cosmos' workings through sacred geometry. Consecutive overlapping circles that each have a symbolic and mathematical universality in their design repeating over and over, into an infinite 6 sided flower. A pattern which exists in all things created ~ from cells to solar systems". Click here to watch a video about the Flower/Seed of Life on Facebook.  You can see more of  Clair's Flower/Seed of Life  and other paintings below in her gallery of sold work and also  in our shop.
