Hi I'm Claire, the artist featured on this website!
Charlene the beautiful SHE'S MY ARTISTIC MUSE.... a lovely loving lovable mystical magical kitty she is!
(i thought this photo of me & Charlene was too plain so I thought I'd put a quick little border around it,
apparently I went a bit nuts) And, well, dang it, Charlene has decided to be a Cat Angel now, as of Oct. 4 2017.
Now, Dec. 2 - I'm adopting a lovely 8 month old kitty
NOW... Dec. 8, I have her! She's Beautiful!! And I named her Shimmer,
she's not warmed up to me yet, but SOON, and I will post a picture.
UPDATE: She's really warmed up to me and lets me hold her and is wonderful!
NOW! OCT. 2020, Shimmer is a happy indoor/outdoor cat living her best life!
Here is Claire wearing her special CREATIVITY glasses
Claire Here At Your Service! OCT. 2020 update:
I wish good health for everyone during this time of the
Great Quarantine of 2020
I'm now painting records but for now can be seen only on my Facebook Page, 'Claire Was Here - Art' they are $45 for LPs....
And the FAMOUS SHIMMER-CAT has a new venture: cat toys! Stay tuned for her favorites that you can buy for your own favorite feline friend! we have not yet started production, but there are ideas flowing... this might not happen but it's a good idea.
NOW I'm making fleece pillows, really small and they have FRINGE!! also I'm painting on records, I'll have to make a page for them, stay tuned.
EVERYTHING HERE IS HANDMADE BY ME, EVEN THE MAGNETS, I LAMINATE THEM ON MY LAMINATOR, THEN CUT THEM OUT INTO DIFFERENT SHAPES, then I affix a magnet to the back.
I paint backwards on old windows (reverse-glass painting). I am especially suited for this process because I've always been able to write backwards! A lot of my towel images come from window paintings.
I was making Cardboard Paintings, I called them the "Archival Schmival" Series. They hang from wire with beads and you can put them over a doornob... or on a wall. UPDATE: They are not selling like hotcakes, they are selling more like cardboard, he-he (... on to something different...) BUT I did get some images for my towels from some of these paintings... and this leads me to my next sermon "there's no such thing as wasted time" "amen."
ABOUT ME: I love to create and learn and do fun things like swim and play mini golf and ping pong and frisbee and hang out with my cat and sew myself some clothes. I'm always trying to find ways to have fun.... creating my products is one of those fun things I really enjoy doing. I'm writing a book about Shimmer and even considering making cat toys, and more pillows, in shapes! I live in Georgia with my cat near a lake and am starting to enjoy traveling around a bit... the beach is a top destination, WAVES!
I sell my magnets and other artsy goodies I come up with, and am always sewing something or painting ...
Business is Great, People are Terrific & Life is WONDERFUL!!! yaHOOO!
