Dean, Claudette

Claudette Dean's passion for the arts initially led to her obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in French Literature. In the realm of Fine Arts she considers herself an intuitive artist who has strengthened and defined her style through studying with accomplished artists at home, with Antonius Roberts and abroad with Selina Trieff at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Mass.

Through a bold and dramatic use of line and color, she blends together figurative and modern art to bring to life universal concepts in a style that is distinctly her own. She has also developed her ""Paradise Collection,"" a body of work that has allowed her to explore the joys of living and having lived in a tropical paradise, The Bahamas, since 1979. A piece from her Paradise Collection, ""Moon Dance,"" was chosen to be on the front cover of Air Waves magazine, summer 2001.

Claudette's work is found in private and corporate collections at home, in the U.K., the U.S. and in Canada, where she is originally from. A featured artist in Volume 4 of ""Woman Speak,"" an anthology of work by women writers and artists of the Caribbean, her painting ""Sisters"" on display at Nassau International Airport has gained her much attention at home and internationally.

Amongst the numerous exhibitions she has participated in nationally and internationally, since 1994, three of them have been held at The Central Bank Gallery in Nassau, Bahamas; ""Hear Me Roar""-1996, ""Between Friends""-1999, and ""We Dream A World""-2002.
