Claire Bull creates art daily in Ontario, Canada. She enjoyed art classes as a child and received awards through high school, continuing on with evening and weekend courses at local Universities and community colleges. Claire attended Nova Scotia College of Art and Design for night classes in the early 1980's with Andy James, who was a brilliant artist and wonderful teacher. She was an Honours English and Psychology student at University and went on to run her own medical transcription business for almost 25 years. Her grandmother was an artist and Claire is blessed to have inherited that creativity throughout her life.
After raising a family in rural Ontario, she and her husband moved to Muskoka, where she was able to paint with acrylics and mixed media in her studio by Georgian Bay. Claire continues to explore new techniques with each work and enjoys creating digital art from her photography. Colour and creativity are the main focus of her work. Depending on her pain level, she uses different styles of painting, various tools, sponges or her fingers while the music plays in the background. Music and art are healing and she paints her positive emotions into each piece.
Claire has won many awards and features on her websites and in competitions in the past few years with growing recognition and exposure on the internet. Her style is constantly evolving, with colour and freedom of expression in her beautiful florals, landscapes, abstract and digital art.
Claire is a member of Artists in Canada, EBSQ (self representing artists), FAA, FASO, Redbubble, Imagekind, Zazzle, Society6, Quest Art Gallery, TWAC, Zephyr, and Saatchi online gallery in the UK. Her work has been featured in the Visual Language International Contemporary Art Magazine and on the cover of the April 2014 issue, Artist of the Day, featured on several blogs, Artist Interviews, and in Sunday Crush magazine Artist of the Week.
She has been an artist with Doors Open Ontario for Georgian Bay and her work is featured on the cover of a Sociology Handbook of Conversation Analysis, an international collaboration of Sociolinguistic and Anthropology professors, which is distributed worldwide. Her Irises painting was part of the Perfume Lovers event in London UK in November of 2012 and her work has been featured in a House and Home magazine in Australia, used as stained glass for birdfeeders and enjoyed as framed and unframed prints, canvas, cards and gift items.
