About Me

"I create expressive paintings for the bold, impassioned soul."

Mary Claire is a visual artist born in Buffalo, NY.  She works primarily in acrylics creating progressive paintings characterized by bold color and imagery with sweet soulful grit.


Her artwork is in many private residences throughout the United States.  She currently lives and works in Orchard Park, NY.


Mary Claire did a painting for me of my children, which I gave to my parents as a Christmas gift. It was absolutely the GREATEST gift I’ve given them! Both of my parents cried the minute they saw it! From just a picture I had taken with my cell phone, Mary Claire made an outstanding piece of art that will be treasured forever!


Mary Claire is such a talented artist and I can’t wait to have a piece of her art hanging in my own home!

-Erika Boettcher

When you see Mary Claire’s work you see Mary Claire. She has a jewel like palatte and a strong sense of flowing line in every piece. There is a bit of magic and human emotion portrayed in the work. Every show I have attended where her work is hung has a strong draw and lights up the wall where it lives for the show.


If you want the art to say something out loud on your wall, her work will get people to listen. It’s not abrasive or glaring…just filled with sweet soul.
