Inspired by her passion for the natural world, Clare focuses on depicting the beauty she sees in wildlife around her, particularly in studying the quirky and fascinating behaviour of wild animals.
Her individual approach to watercolour painting builds on a wet-on-wet technique, exploring the controlled unpredictability of pigments as they merge in multiple layers of wet washes.
Clare has a degree in Graphic Design with Illustration and has worked professionally for over fifteen years within this field. There is consequently a strong illustrative influence within her paintings.
Based in the South West of England, Clare is currently working on a new exhibition for 2013, titled Near Endangered: art inspired by local and global conservation issues. This exhibition will aim to raise awareness and funds for Bristol Zoo’s field conservation projects.
When not designing or painting, Clare enjoys being outdoors and exploring the countryside trying to spot elusive hares, otters, foxes and deer.
