Hello, I'm Claire Chambers. I run the Chickenpants Studio, which is found very near to Portland, Oregon. I am utterly obsessed with drawing cute animals and making things.
I'm a self taught artist who works in mixed media and gouache. The main subject of most of my paintings are dogs of the flat faced variety, in particular pugs. My work explores themes of aging, identity, and freedom of expression; usually through humorous pugs.
My work has been featured in many places.
Chickenpants Studio is named after the Chickenpants art dolls I used to make. They are one of a kind plush chicken toys, often wearing pop icon costumes. At the time of writing this (April 2017), there were 691 (regular, 7″ size) Chickenpants made. I've been making them since 2007. (I'm not focusing on making them at this time, but you never know when they'll pop back up!)
