MEET THE ARTIST
Claire is an experienced artist who feels her eye for balance and composition has been informing her choices since the early days of digital photography, long before she picked up a paintbrush. She creates pieces that are striking in different ways – sometimes tranquillity and quietness are evoked perhaps using subtle colours or a limited palette, other times there is drama and intrigue expressed through bold marks over blended and layered backgrounds.
Claire works on small collections of like pieces but as her style, mark-making, media and inspiration evolve the work can develop rapidly in new directions.
Describe your image
“I’ve realised how important it is to keep moving in my art, I’m constantly exploring and pushing in new directions. The experience of creating is exciting and demanding in equal measure but it’s something I’m driven to: I feel stifled when I can’t create.
Part of the process is to understand how people respond to the work, so I love gauging people’s reactions and thrive on feedback. I get huge satisfaction from knowing a painting of mine has found an appreciative new home, as my paintings are all a small piece of who I am at the time I make them.” - CB
