Stephanie Clair is renowned for her Cubist influenced artistry that reveals a profound understanding and celebration of the human soul. She gleans her inspiration from blissful, dreamy moments—a first love, a memory, lovers sipping wine, a guitar player finding his song—and captures a snapshot of these moments on canvas. Using environmentally friendly oils, Clair’s work challenges the eyes and minds of her viewers, inviting them into a three-dimensional world of people, passion and beauty. Her influences include Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Modigliani and Kandinsky—hence the bright colors, dreamy people, and Cubist perspectives. “I wish to connect with people on the most raw and intimate levels of all—passion, weakness, love— feelings and emotions that we don’t always reveal,” Clair says. “These deeply woven thoughts inside our hearts and minds is that common thread where I can connect to my viewers, and ultimately to the world around me.” Raised in upstate New York, Clair drew her way through cold winter days. After high school, she moved to Virginia, where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting/Design at Old Dominion University. Having had enough cold to last a lifetime, Clair now happily calls sunny San Diego home.
