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 Kenya and India. 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 in London and she held her first London solo show at Cricket Fine Art in 2018 and her second is currently on until 28th September when I moves to Cricket Fine Art, Hengerford. She has completed numerous works on commission including, notably, portraits of the President of the Law Society and the Marquess of Downshire.
Clare is currently represented by: Cricket Fine Art, Chelsea. London
