Claire Komacek

I am currently a student at Moore College of Art & Design, majoring in Art History with a double minor in Textile Design and Business.  My all-women’s college experience has been both illuminating and mystifying.  I continuously find myself drawn to ideas surrounding women through domesticity, the divine feminine, and women’s connection to the earth.

My textile artwork is crafted around the visual textures, patterns, and colors in the world around me; this is the premise on which I base my artwork to simply be ‘visually pleasing,’ preferably exempt from interpretation.  Being a busy student, I have very little time for my own artistic pursuits, but hope that once I graduate I am able to find more free time to craft these images in my head into form.

Above all, I feel most concerned with attaining inner peace.
