Canvas: 22" x 17"

Outside, in front of our home are two separate trees. When I look at them from our living room inside however, they weave together and appear to be one. They are still two separate trees, but a transformation occurs when they are seen from the vantage point of our home. We are still two unique individuals, but our lives are continually being joined together making us a home for each other, and from this vantage point we are one.

"I have found the one in whom my soul delights"

Song of Songs 3:4
Claire began working with MP Artworks at the Florida Studio in 2001. Encouraged by the work of the other artists and the art of ketubah making, she then began to explore and connect her Jewish heritage to her painting. This season breathed fresh air into her work and she soon began to display her paintings with MP Artworks. She is delighted at the privilege of sharing her work with couples as a celebration of their marriage and of Jewish culture.

Claire graduated from the University of Hawai'i in 1997, earning a BFA in painting with High Honors. Her works have appeared in exhibits throughout the U.S. and Canada. She currently works as a painter and graphic designer and resides in Halifax, Nova Scotia with her husband, Ian.
