Claire Luce Baldwin is a writer and illustrator who celebrates places worth saving, and shares stories that spark empathy.


Claire completed two years at Tyler School of Art, then followed her passion for social and environmental justice to University of Maryland, where she graduated with a B.A. in Maternal and Child Health Equity in 2016. She worked as an environmental educator in Northern California; a prep-cook in Stehekin in North Cascades National Park; a front desk clerk in Glacier National Park; and a Park Ranger, field school instructor, and Youth Conservation Corps Crew Lead in Grand Canyon National Park. In 2018, she created the official centennial poster series for Grand Canyon.

She is currently a Development and Membership Manager for Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust. Claire continues her illustration and writing practice, and excerpts of her Young Adult retelling of Thumbelina are available on Patreon. She teaches art lessons, both online through Skillshare, and in parks including the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge.

Her favorite ice cream is anything involving a chocolate base and chocolate chunks. Her favorite color is vermillion, and she has zero chill for old, wooden ships.

Claire is available for collaborations and commissions. Please email her at to get in touch.
