"I want to create rich and vibrant surfaces in my paintings that when balanced with minimal composition instil a sense of contemplation, reflection and calm. Building the painting with layers of mark making, colour and tone, the paintings resonate together and on their own and go some way to echo the beautiful and meditative spaces I encounter and that have inspired them."

A Fine Art graduate of Edinburgh University and Edinburgh College of Art, Claire is a practising painter in oils represented by the gallery Cameron Contemporary Art based in Brighton and Hove and represented at UK wide art fairs.
