Claire Bentley – Claire is originally from New York where she took some art classes at the Art Students League in NYC while teaching. Then marriage, children and a move to Virginia put a hold on her art pursuits. After retiring from teaching, she began taking courses at the Workhouse Art Center in Lorton, VA and discovered her love of watercolor. Her inspiration comes from nature, travel, and observations of people and animals. She is a member of the Loft Gallery in Occoquan, VA, the Virginia Watercolor Society, and the Springfield Art Guild, of which she is a former board member. Claire’s work has been juried in numerous local shows.
