Welcome to the website of representational artist
Clare Thorbes.


I invite you to view a sample of my oil portraits of people and animals, created on location and at my studio near Bear River, Nova Scotia. If you fall in love with an image, please contact me about purchasing the original painting or a high-quality reproduction.

Drop by The Flight of Fancy in Bear River to see some of my animal portraits and lots of other fabulous creations by local artists and artisans. Subscribe to my blog to see my newest work and read about the wonders and oddities of making art. Enjoy!
