Claire began painting professionally in the early 90’s,working from her Studio /Gallery in Herefordshire. The Gallery is open to the public where most of her recent work is on display and her commissions are undertaken
Using both oils and pastels, her techniques are traditional. Claire draws her inspiration from the countryside around her, with a special interest in the play of light on subjects in their natural surroundings.
Whilst achieving a remarkable likeness with her commissioned portraits, Claire has a great ability of capturing the character and particular personality of her subjects. This has been widely recognised and for this reason commissions now play a major part of her work.
further examples of Claire’s work can be viewed on her website and commission enquiries are welcomed via the email link above
