Claire Gowdy

I am a short lady who likes to paint on large canvases. I use mostly acrylics with touches of pastel, spray paint, charcoal and/or texture. I use all the tools: brushes, palette knives, scrapers, and frequently my fingers.

I am a lifelong native of South Louisiana. My art is heavily influenced by the diversity of the marshy landscapes and river industry so prevalent here. My abstracts evolve from a deep imagination and exploration of color, form, and medium, often mixing all three until the image is pleasing and balanced. I constantly explore with new color palettes from bright to soft, bold to light.
