About the Artist

 

Claire Owens is a surface pattern designer based in Rochester, New York. Through pattern, her ideas flourish into tactile and functional objects. She finds inspiration in nature as well as color, focusing on the overall composition of the patterns and how they will be applied to various surfaces. Using a combination of silkscreen printmaking, gouache painting and traditional quilting, weaving, and hand-sewing methods, her aim is to decorate the world with more patterns.
