Claire is an artist and maker who uses papers, fabric, felt, stitch, wire and found objects to create collage, mixed media and textile images. She has always loved painting, particularly abstracts, inspired by artists such as Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky and Sonia Delauney. More recently she has discovered a fascination for working with textiles, often combining textiles with paint to create collages.
The inspiration for her work is drawn from her travels, from the surrounding landscapes and from her early training as a geologist. Her style is textural and colourful.
Based in Surrey and currently completing a Diploma in Design and Stitched Textiles, she has exhibited in Denbies of Dorking, Ramster’s bi-annual textile art exhibition, Cranleigh Arts Centre and at App Art’s annual exhibition in Godalming.
