Claire’s work is associated with with colour in paintings of nature’s dynamism and recording her path through landscape. A member of The Arborealists, trees are recurring subject matter alongside recording natural phenomenon. Her paintings demand our respect for nature through exploration of its beauty and untameable ferocity. She prolifically paints in oils and draws with charcoal and pastel. Claire lives and works in the Norfolk Broads National Park.
‘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
