Artist’s Profile Claire lives in Ledbury in rural Herefordshire and works predominately in clay, but she also has a passion for drawing and painting. Form and colour dominates her work which is inspired by nature and her love of art history, (particularly late 19th century onwards). Claire has been teaching Art and Design, full time for the past nineteen years, but has recently become self-employed to enable her to focus on her own creativity. However, she enjoys teaching workshops in both two and three-dimensional media, in addition to working on commissions in either paint or clay.
