Claire Cansick Artist Studio 2024

My work is associated with with colour in paintings of nature’s dynamism, documenting my path through the landscape and respect for nature through an exploration of its inescapable beauty and untameable ferocity. I work predominantly with oils and charcoal using photos as source material. The photo is soon discarded allowing the paint to dictate as it responds to its adjacent colour or stroke. The painted object then overtakes the subject matter and my instinct completes the work.

I live and work in Norfolk, UK,
