Do You Know... ... Claude Larson? Submitted by Cindy Davis

Claude Larson is fiber and mixed media artist. She has been working with and producing her own textiles and papers using; paint, dye and various forms of surface design since 2001. She incorporates commercially produced textiles and found papers into her pieces as well. Some of Claude's favorite elements of design such as: color, texture, shape and lines are the foundation for her work. Claude is primarily self-taught and likes the process of experimentation.

Although most of her work is non-objective, some pieces are playfully representational though not realistic. Claude's love of vibrant colors and varied textures are evident in her work. She title hers pieces according to what is happening at a particular time in her life!

Claude's studio is representative of her work style and aptly named "Random Acts of Piece". Beginning with a single textile or element for inspiration, Claude works intuitively and randomly. Her pieces have a deliberate, quiet complexity that encourages intimacy with the viewer and they lean in and see details and a boldness that invites the viewer to then stand back and see the big picture!

Matted prints begin at $25.00. Visit The Art Factory of White Mills to see Claude's talent! She will be the featured artist throughout the month of March. Come see her beautiful display filled with many of her prolific pieces!
