Hi, I’m Claire Idera.

An Artist and Tutor based in Lagos, Nigeria. I create delicate looking representations of a young black woman who is constantly in a state of introspect.

“My work centers around my personal journals from childhood to motherhood, portraiture and ethereal vibes. I am fascinated by the idea of identity and the role growth plays in the finding of it. With every painting, I attempt to juxtapose physical and mental metamorphosis ideologies about the female being with whimsical creatures and colors.”
