Desjardins' dynamic compositions reflect the optimism of new beginnings, with a bright and vibrant palette. The continuation of her abstract series is largely inspired by her move from downtown Montreal to a rural home and studio surrounded by forest. Desjardins feels she has experienced an evolution in her skills along with this new, uninterrupted space of tranquility, where she is able to fully immerse herself in her practice and more able to listen to her "visceral voice".

Desjardins' work is also represented in the realm of decorative arts. U.S. retail chain Anthropologie incorporates Desjardins' original artwork on merchandise, such as bags, rugs, bedding, and accessories sold under the "Claire Desjardins" signature label. 

Desjardins' work can be found in private and corporate collections around the world. Her work is represented across Canada and internationally.
