Claire Carew was born in the country of Guyana, South America, of African, Arawak and European ancestry.
Her experiences with the rituals of shaman healers have helped her discover the lives of her historic ancestors and thereby enliven her art.
The colors and subjects of Claire’s paintings and sculptures continue to evolve and be enriched by her exploration of indigenous cultures which inform the mystery of her creative process.
As a result her work is ethereal, guided by dream interpretations and the wisdom of “the ancient ones.”
Claire feels that her strongest body of work has been completed in México.
