The work of Canadian artist Claire Desjardins focusses on gestures and colour. With energetic brushstrokes that almost seem to leap of the canvas and a palette so bold that her paintings exude a vibrant energy - she aims to 'paint happiness' and to inspire joy in the viewer.

Desjardins regularly exhibits her work in galleries and art fairs throughout North America and she has served as a jury member on several national art prizes.

And the artist’s work does not stop at the rectangle of the canvas. It has been part of many fruitful collaborations with global companies such as US retailer Anthropologie, and tech giants Microsoft and Samsung. In early 2019, she even launched a signature collection of women's apparel under her own label.
