Claire Tarnacki Bio
“I have lived in Evanston for 35 years. For most of that time I hopped on the train to Chicago where I worked as an art/ creative director at various ad agencies. My career exposed me to an inspiring variety of talented artists, illustrators and photographers — yet rarely left time to act on any of these inspirations in my own art outside of work. When I retired a few years ago, I realized I had a desire to build on the foundation of my career-long exposure to all that talent. I have since taken up painting with pent up enthusiasm, working in gouache, acrylic and watercolor.
I paint the places I want to spend time in — places I have seen and want to revisit, as well as places that I would like to know more about through the exploration of painting them.”
