Claire Gagnon Art - About Claire

Born and raised in Quebec, Canada, I reconnected with my artistic roots
in 1997, and more seriously when I moved to the states in 2000. I studied
drawing and acrylic painting for 4 years with Micheline Raymond, an artist
for 40 years, and founder of the Creativ'Art Gallery and School in Montreal

Since 2000, I have had the chance to study with Tom Gill, a talented artist from Lowell, who uses characteristic brushstrokes and bright colors. Already a colorist myself when I first met Tom, he showed me how to push each color further, adding more contrast and giving a deeper impact to the paintings. The Tom Gill influence shows in most of my paintings, through the colors and a better sense of composition and harmony. I have also studies with Charles Movalli, Dale Radcliff,
Charles Sovek, amongst others.

Living in Dracut, I have met a lot of wonderful artists by joining local art groups including: the Chelmsford Art Society (as the President), the Brush Art Gallery, the Whistler House Museum, and the Andover Artist Guild.

With my artist friends, I have discovered the pleasure of painting landscapes
"en plein air". On a nice summer day, I like to pack my easel with a picnic, go on location and paint a landscape study with my friends. Sometimes, it gives the best results reflecting the spontaneity and atmosphere of the day.

If you want any of the paintings in this website or would like to commission me for a painting, do not hesitate to contact me. It will be a pleasure to answer your questions. Email at or call at (617) 901-3873.
