About

Painting of a small child standing in a wood of autumn colours, an old shack off to the right.

Claire’s work is associated with with a specific use of colour, in paintings of nature’s dynamism and humanity’s imprint on the landscape.  A member of The Arborealists trees are recurring subject matter alongside recording extreme weather events. Her paintings search for a narrative which rests somewhere between nature’s wrath and our helplessness in its wake.

‘Claire’s stylised take on our natural and human world creates beautiful compositions that lure us in. The dappled light in her forest scenes appears tangible and seductive.’  Adriana Marques
