Clare Elsaesser.

I was introduced to Clare Elsaesser's beautiful work last year by Miss Moss, and it's been on my wishlist ever since.

I love the simultaneous calm and power within these paintings—exactly like the ocean that Clare pulls so much inspiration from. While paintings of other subjects certainly exist in her shop—there are beautiful abstract pieces, alongside flowers and quiet portraiture—I'm really drawn to these paintings of women looking out. Whatever that means.

I moved into a new apartment this month, and the walls are still bare. I can't wait to hang one (or twelve?) of Clare's prints up.
