Studio Visit: Claire Desjardins

desjardins_portrait.jpg

Montreal artist Claire Desjardins produces work that is as colourful and lively as both her studio and her personality. Currently working with canvases that are big, bigger and biggest, Claire just moved into a loft space housed in a former mattress factory. Not far from the Lachine Canal, the studio is full of light, energy and activity. This is one artist space where pictures tell the whole story …

“When I walk in the door to my studio, this is what greets me.

My big, fabulous window: light gushes into my space, filling me with inspiration.

desjardins_drying.jpg

Quiet corner with drafting table and more art supplies. Big art drying on the floor.

desjardins_easel.jpg

One of my many easels, thick with paint on it. They all kind of look like this.

desjardins_paint_table.jpg

My paint table.

desjardins_sitting_area.jpg

My sitting area is where I eat and meet clients. It can get a little crowded at times.

My back-up paint: I never want to run out, so I buy lots and lots. These ones are gallon-sized buckets!

desjardins_door.jpg

My front door. Actually, this was my front door when I was in studio 252. Since I moved, I haven’t gotten a new sign on my door (but I will!). It’s going to look like this, in any case.”
