Claire is a rising senior at Hamilton College with a double major in economics and art, with a focus in oil painting and animation. She just returned from a semester abroad at Tyler School of Art in Rome where she studied Italian, fresco painting, and figure modeling. She is excited to transition from the classical to the digital art world at Planet Nutshell this summer.

When she isn’t at Hamilton, Claire works as a children’s figure skating coach at the Skating Club at Dartmouth, and as an art teacher at AVA Gallery in Lebanon, New Hampshire. She is a Vermont native, and often goes on backpacking and backcountry skiing adventures in the Green and White Mountains in her free time. She can also often be found on the water, between training with Hamilton’s rowing team and ocean sailing in the coastal waters of Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
