Christine Claes was born in Detroit, USA in 1955 and is the third generation of a Dutch dynasty of painters. She studied formally in New York.

After many visits to France Christine finally settled in Paris in 1994, swapping the peaceful mountain surrounds of the Hudson Valley for rooftops and sidewalk cafés! The narrative of her paintings is to interpret rather than represent reality, the subtle and changing Paris light providing an endless choice of compositions.

Christine works in a spontaneous manner and prefers warm colours. The end result, as seen in 'Soleil d'été' is often reminiscent of a collage.
