Claire Godbee is an artist based out of Birmingham, Alabama. She graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in the spring of 2016 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Her work has been exhibited in Abroms-Engel Institute for Visual Arts, Birmingham Public Library Gallery, the Grand Bohemian Gallery, and other galleries in the southeast.

Godbee’s work explores and celebrates the female form and experience. Concentrated on emotion and nonobjective matters, her paintings involve a plethora of colors, patterns, and different postures. By removing her subjects from their natural environments and placing them in her own, she is able to reveal a variety of narratives embodying growth, identity, unity and purpose.
