  • Biography
Claire is a painter based in Duns in the Scottish Borders. She graduated from Edinburgh University with an Ma in Fine Art, with distinction in painting, in 1997 and has been painting full time and exhibiting widely since 2009. Her minimal works in oil focus on colour and tone and use familiar motifs such as the single tree or group of trees to draw the eye into her exploration of the painting plane.

'I am interested in the depth of tone and atmosphere that is created by layering and juxtaposing colour and creating rich areas of stumble mark making. Inspired daily by the stunning landscape on my doorstep I strive to realise a dynamic and bold image but one that is very still, calm , composed and balanced. Like a jewel for the eye. '
1997 - MA (Hons) Fine Art Uof Edin and ECA
