With a studio based in the heart of the beautiful Tamar Valley in Cornwall, Clare's work is understandably influenced by a love of the natural world that surrounds her.
She has been inspired by the richness of Impressionism throughout her life and works with oils and a small palette knife to create wonderfully textured pieces.
Each painting is heavily researched on site to try and capture the ambience and composition that will enable a painting to embrace its audience. Carefully studying her subject matter enables Clare to fully explore and work with the complexity of light, colour and texture. In particular, she is drawn to rich vegetation and scenes featuring water, where the intricacy of all three values can be fully explored.
