Claire Alexandre is an intersectional artist and storyteller who weaves autobiographical reflections with ancestral knowledge while exploring larger themes of environmental, gender and racial justice. She seeks to deepen our collective understanding of Black community prosperity and its close ties with ecologies of all scales.

Through mixed-media painting, street art and botanical knowledge, she used her residency to create modern day mythologies and heroes honoring the resilience, power and complexities of Black Diasporic identity, particularly that of womxn. Claire hosted an artist share and paper making demo at Speak Easy Farms as an offering to the New Orleans community.
