Claire Aldridge is a multidisciplinary artist from Calgary, Alberta of Metis and settler descent.
She grew up in love with storytelling and art, and is thrilled to be finding the perfect balance of those in the world of design. Her love of play drives her work, pushing her to explore all possibilities with joy while leading with the heart of the story. The resulting work are designs that are precise with real force and evocation.
While at the National Theatre School, Claire has had the opportunity to design costumes for Corps de verre trempé, directed by Sébastien David and The Trojan Kids directed by Allison Kelly. As well as, the set and props design for Macbeth directed by Matjash Mrozewski. She also had the privilege to study under Stéphane Longpré, François Vincent, Gillian Gallow, Pierre-Etienne Locas and Michael Slack.
Selected skills: Photoshop, Procreate, Sketchup, rendering both digital and traditional, props and puppet building, sewing, drawing and painting
