About The Artist
Claire Falconer is an Irish artist working predominantly in oils to create contemplative, ethereal paintings. Her work seems at once ancient and modern, an alchemy of colour, blended, layered and subtly glazed, reflecting a sense of mystery and sensuality.Her work first gained national acclaim in 2001 when she won RTE Television’s Open House Art Award and had a sell out exhibition at the Abode Gallery in Dublin. Currently nestled in the wilds of Donegal she is working on bringing nature's beauty and power to the fore in her new collection.
