Paintings

Claire spends as much time as she can walking or running with her dog in the beautiful South Downs countryside that surrounds her home, and inspiration often strikes during these expeditions. She will usually start working on the composition ‘en plein air’ (outdoors  on location), creating small tonal sketches, pastels or small oils which she brings back to her garden studio to use as reference material and ideas to build on.
 

As well as painting on location near her Sussex home, Claire has travelled in the UK and further afield in search of inspiration. She has a strong connection with Devon, and loves to paint around Lymington in the area she was born and the Isle of Wight, as well as in France where she often holidays.
