Clare was born in Guildford, Surrey. She studied Law at Downing College, Cambridge, Fine Art at Harrogate College and Portraiture at the Charles Cecil Studio, Florence. 

Clare paints portraits on commission. She enjoys painting the portraits from life; each sitting being a collaboration between herself and her subject in the creation of the final finished work. She loves to take inspiration from travels; recently producing work following trips to India and Burma. She endeavours to capture the atmosphere of her subject whilst developing her interest in colour.

Clare has exhibited widely, including at the Society of Women Artists and has been a gallery artist at Cricket Fine Art, Chelsea for several years and has had two successful London Solo Shows. She has completed numerous works on commission including, notably, portraits of the President of the Law Society, the Marquess of Downshire and two High Sheriffs.
