Meet Claire Cushman
I’ve been lucky enough to go to Maine every summer of my life. As a child, whenever I arrived in Maine, I would rush down to the beach to breathe the sea air, touch the cold water, hunt for treasures among the rocks—and get out my paint set. While I don’t paint Maine landscapes exclusively, the Maine coast has always been my greatest source of inspiration as an artist.
I live and work between Montclair, New Jersey, and Sorrento, Maine. I primarily work with oil on canvas. I hold a BA in English from Brown University and an MFA in painting from the New York Academy of Art.
