Claire Sianna Seaman is a filmmaker and painter from Leavenworth, WA, whose work grapples with the human relationship to the natural environment. More than an attempt to come to terms with and climate change, she seeks to share and cultivate community-based solutions to the climate crisis through art. She holds a BA from Smith College in Studio Art, with a concentration in Climate Change.

Since graduating from college in 2020, Claire has been featured in the Wild and Scenic Film Festival Art Exhibition and chosen for the Conservation, History, and Art (CHA) Residency from the Icicle Creek Center for the Arts and the Olympic National Park Terminus project. She has made short films for the Washington State Department of Natural Resources and Upper Valley MEND, a non-profit dedicated to making housing, nutrition, and healthcare accessible.

In 2021, she was chosen to work with scientists from the University of Washington Climate Impacts Group to create an art piece that imagined climate resiliency in the Pacific Northwest.

Claire is currently preparing work for a spring exhibition at Confluence Gallery in Twisp, and hopes to begin graduate studies for human geography in September.
