Clare Elsaesser

Beautiful simple painting by Clare Elsaesser | www.alicia-carvalho.com/blog

I can’t remember where I came across Clare Elsaesser paintings but I do know that I have been swooning over them for months now. The first ones I saw were definitely the floral ones and I immediately knew I needed one. A few months later I finally visited her Etsy store and realized that I loved pretty much all of her prints, making it impossible to decide on just one.

I really love simple artwork. Simplicity is my new tagline. Clare’s work has very simple colour schemes and usually just one main subject. There is so much intriguing texture in her artwork. The thick brush strokes create a certain dynamic in the frame and the vibrant colours bring the piece to life.

Isn’t that black pillow one just amazing? I could totally see myself buying a big 16×20 print of it and hanging it above my bed. As of right now I seriously still want them all. I guess I will take some more time to swoon over her entire collection before deciding on one (or several) final pieces. I love purchasing artwork but it isn’t always easy.

Do you have a current favourite print or artist?

I love water prints. These two especially speak to me, I almost feel like I can relate to the girl in the painting. I do have the same hair style :) paintings by Clare Elsaesser | www.alicia-carvalho.com/blog

I want to get a really large print of this and hang it over my bed. Painting by Clare Elsaesser | www.alicia-carvalho.com/blog

Clare’s paintings are fantastic! I really love the work of a local artist, B. Renee. She does great nature pieces and landscapes. I really want to get one of her pieces for my dining room.

Does she have her work online? I’m curious to see :)

Oh these are so gorgeous – you’re right, the texture in them is really special. Love the floral one with the pale blue background!

Yes, that is one of my favourite ones too!

Love this! seriously want to get everything from her etsy shop.
Thank you for sharing :)

I know, right? Such a hard decision….

The one where the lady is hugging the flowers – that is absolutely gorgeous!!
Btw, love your design site, Alicia! :)

I may be purchasing a small one of those floral prints :)
