"I’m so glad I ordered a portrait from Claire. As a visual artist & writer, I believe that it is very important to have my avatar visually telling my story. First impressions must send the right message. Claire is so thoughtful and patient, she takes your wishes and corrections into account every step of the way! I couldn’t have asked for a better creative process. Claire succeeded in capturing my soul and putting it into her drawing. I will definitely consider ordering from her again in the future."

As a creator, she’s attentive to detail and extremely intuitive about the design and organization of my website with a particular eye for visual aesthetic, even so far as it related to the branding for my content.
