Claire is an oil painter living and working in Norfolk where she also grew up. Her work starts and ends with a choice around colour, usually using only using three or four colours. Claire says she is inspired by her immediate surroundings, poignant memories and current affairs, including climate change, which motivates her to explore recessive colour to create mood and ambience. She works from photos and drawings as source material up to a point, and then the painting takes over and Claire is guided by what’s happening on the surface.
Claire graduated from Great Yarmouth School of Art and Norwich University of the Arts with a BA in Printmaking and identifies as a self-taught oil painter.
She has run art galleries, and exhibited widely throughout the UK in solo and group shows including solo shows at Chappel Gallery in Colchester. She has been a featured Rise Art artist since 2011 and was invited to become a member of The Arborealists in 2017.
