“My hope is that the observer, when viewing my art, would find it to be hopeful and life-giving; that my paintings would bring light into places which might otherwise be quite dim.”

Claire Osborn is a Miami, Florida based artist and designer. She was classically trained in oil, watercolor and acrylic at both SAMK in Kankaanpää, Finland and Arkansas State University, where, in 2005, she received her B.F.A. in Studio Art with an emphasis in painting and drawing. She has since worked as an artist and designer, creating wall art and home décor products for major retail stores across the U.S., Canada and Europe.

While she enjoys design, painting is her first love. Claire spends most days in her studio, studying flowers and transforming arrangements from leaves and blooms into lively, illustrative portraits.
