Claire Allured is a British born, half French Artist to an English Artist and Sculptor. She pursued various arts and crafts from a young age and continued through to her Graphic Design Degree. A year after graduating she began her travels in India where she learned to meditate and from there started creating paintings from her emotions and experiences in meditation.
She sought out and found a mentor who could teach her, and ended up spending time in the foothills of the Himalayas learning to paint under a local philanthropist and international artist.
Some time later, she fell into depression and experienced creative block. She created FaceConscious as a way of connecting with herself again and in turn reach out and connect with others, in a way that would improve her skills in the medium she loves and create a project that defies creative block. Since then she has been creating every day, as is her desire for her life. From here she strives to keep connecting, creating and improving the quality of her work and expanding upon her capabilities as an artist. Outwardly, her desire is to inspire others to follow their dreams and to demonstrate how dreams can be built, little by little, one day at a time. She advocates for self expression as she believes that it’s the first step towards living authentically which is more of what the world needs.
