Claire started her career in the corporate world, advising on artwork for offices and public spaces. For nearly twenty years she has combined being an artist with teaching art, working mainly with adults groups since 2013. Her qualifications include a Fine Art degree and a post-graduate qualification in Art and Design. Teaching roles have included running a G.C.S.E. department, teaching A Level Art and Graphic Design and tutoring on a Foundation course. For the last eight years she has taught weekly painting and drawing classes to adults at New Brewery Arts in Cirencester. She draws on her knowledge of both classical and contemporary art practises to provide activities that are both challenging and fun.
She is frequently commissioned for her portraits and exhibits regularly in galleries and at art fairs.
"I have been going to Claire's art classes for several years. She is a really excellent teacher...enthusiastic, encouraging and able to advise people of different levels of skill with different styles. A talented artist herself, she is very knowledgable about artists and the art world; she shares that knowledge in useful ways. Importantly, Claire's classes are fun."
