Clare was brought up by the coast in North Yorkshire. She studied Fine Art Painting at Wimbledon School of Art and Goldsmiths University in the 90s, and, more recently, Printmaking at the Curwen Print Centre with Stanley Jones and Chloe Cheese. Following a successful career as a Head of Art, Clare made the decision to focus full-time on her artwork. Her work has been selected for shows at the Royal Academy of Arts, The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, and the Society of Women Artists.

“The worlds above and below the ocean’s surface have been my most recent inspiration, which serve as a metaphor for human interactions about love, loss, and hope. I walk each day with my dog, in all weathers. To be at the edge of the elements, where light shifts and dances; reliant and yet independent of the darkness, is exciting. This immersive ritual of walking through familiar terrain allows me time to reflect whilst acquiring sensory information on the way. Inadvertently, I leave traces and layers of memory in the ground as I imprint my own marks on the evolving paths.

Back in the studio, I work intuitively to begin with, usually on several pieces at the same time, which allows me to see what is working and expand on ideas. I build many layers of acrylic paint, drawn marks and hand painted collage and sand back into the surface to reveal flashes of previous marks and colours, allowing the history of each piece to emerge.

As the paintings develop, I then take a more critical approach, refining and resolving areas while striving to keep the energy of the initial marks. My day usually ends with another walk at sunset which gives me food for thought for tomorrow’s developments.”
