Claudette Dean
of Freeport, Grand Bahama island is a published artist, poet and writer. She has held many solo exhibits and has participated in many local and international group exhibits. She works primarily in oil and mixed media.

Recently Dean has announced the launch of a new product line that features her fine art. She has partnered with VIDA who have placed her work on handbags, scarves, shawls, and cushions.

Intrinsic to her art is a spiritual perspective, and she describes her style as modern mystical.

"My desire is to create art that speaks from the spirit to the spirit in a language that reflects love and unity, thereby promoting equity and compassion."

Claudette Dean was born and educated in Canada where she obtained a B.A. degree in French Literature. She continued her studies at the University of Nice in the south of France where she was immersed in the world of fine art. It was here that her innate passion for the visual arts was first awakened.

In 1979, Claudette relocated from Montreal Canada to Freeport Grand Bahama where she continues to reside as a Bahamian citizen. She spent several years teaching French and later owning and operating two local businesses. At a time in her life when the status quo was no longer enough and a search for meaning had become undeniable, her latent passion began to resurface.

She started painting in the early 1990’s and has never looked back. The generous support of her husband, children, family and friends, as well as the early mentorship and guidance of renowned Bahamian artist Antonius Roberts, figured prominently in her growth as an artist.  More at: http://claudettedean.com
