Claire de Quénetain Textile design

After having studied Visual Arts at the Lausanne University of Art and Design (ECAL) in Switzerland, Claire de Quénetain continued her artistic studies at the Royal College of Art in London in textile prints. During her studies she developed a passion for gardens, which led to the development of a personal expression of painting and drawing. Quénetain paints spontaneously in order to capture the generosity of shapes, colours, and the movement of nature. She draws her inspiration from her childhood spent in Normandy, where the garden surrounded by the forest was home to many plant and animal species. Today, her inspiration includes a series of gardens where she continues to carry out her visual research.
Since 2015, Quénetain has built up her upholstery brand. Printed in England on linen and cotton, the fabrics are ideal for making curtains, tapestries and cushions. The fabrics are also regularly used as artistic pieces, in panels or stretched on a frame because fabric printing reproduces a similar visual quality to the original painting. At the same time, Quénetain is also developing a mural painting practice for individuals and interior designers. She also creates paintings for different interior design and fashion brands such as Heals, Maison Thevenon, Jim Thompson, Anthropologie and Chatelles.
