Claire Holloway is an emerging wildlife artist entering her senior year at the University of Oklahoma’s School of Visual Art as well as studying at the Oklahoma Academy of Classical Art. Since Claire is fascinated with the emotions, grace and power of animals, her paintings and sculptures revolve around the stories of wild species, particularly how humans and animals interact. Although humans live in a separate constructed world than animals, the world these two species exist on is fundamentally the same. The stories created from these beneficial, symbiotic and even detrimental interactions are the main subject of Claire’s work. Along with being fascinated with the wild world, Claire has always loved dogs and has a pet portrait business.
