Claire Rosen is an award-winning, internationally exhibited and collected artist whose elaborate constructions often feature animals or still-life which are evocative of classical European paintings. Though the work is rooted in traditional aesthetics, it is intended to create dialogue around contemporary issues such as the need for environmental conservation. The transportive images captivate with a fascination of the natural world. Claire was twice named to Forbes “30 under 30” for Art & Design and her work has been featured in Communication Arts, The Guardian, Harper’s Magazine, NPR, National Geographic, Refinery29, Smithsonian Magazine, and The Washington Post. Claire speaks about the creative process around the world and her book, IMAGINARIUM: The Process Behind the Pictures, covers the artistic practice of photography. Claire is a Fujifilm creator. She graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2006 and Bard College at Simon’s Rock in 2003. Claire is currently restoring the historic Warwick Furnace Farm with her family in rural Chester County, PA cultivating Certified Naturally Grown lavender, crafting natural artisan lavender products and building an artistic program around the intersection of art, history, and nature.
