Fine artist Claudette Koen grew up in Johannesburg, matriculated from the National School of the Arts and then moved to Ireland for 14 years with her family where she  graduated from LSAD  and held her first solo exhibition, Cailin,  at the Thinkk Creative Gallery in Limerick in June 2008 . She has exhibited in various galleries since then and donated to several charities. Now based in L’Agulhas with her partner, goldsmith Marius Koen, they have collaborated to form Darme.

Claudette is inspired by the Impressionists and Secessionists. She predominantly uses oil on canvas and tries to create pieces that are vibrant and capture intensity with the use of complimentary colour and impasto and loves working with models or from photographs taken of nature and her surroundings.

“I like to incorporate this theatrical world into my work. The art school and being surrounded by musicians, dancers, actors and artists has had an influence on my style and genre”.

Claudette has worked on commission pieces for clients, where the colours and mood of the painting are discussed. Clients may want to have an old photograph painted or set up a photo shoot or perhaps work on something conceptual. All enquiries are welcome and new projects are a challenge and interesting to work on.

As all things to do with art, tastes are individual and ideas are personal and never just black and white. Therefore all enquiries are encouraged to be made via email initially. Contact Claudette:
