Working predominantly in oils and watercolours, carefully observed still life and atmospheric seascapes provide endless fascination for this Buckinghamshire artist and teacher.
Clare has exhibited with the Royal Watercolour society at the Bankside Gallery at the Green and Stone Gallery, Chelsea and was shortlisted for the Royal Institute of Watercolour exhibition at the Mall Galleries.
Clare loves the creative process and is constantly inspired by the world around her. She says that when she starts a painting it is a feeling of that moment that she is trying to capture, whether that be in the case of a still life – a fixed moment in time, the intention behind the scene; or for landscapes, the weather, light conditions and mood. She enjoys the challenge of recreating a special moment hoping her paintings begin to tell their own story.
More recently Clare has been developing work for her Hedgerows and Birdlife collection which has been her main inspiration during the recent lockdowns.
Further watercolours and oil paintings are available to view at Woburn Art Gallery, Vitreus Art Gallery and Studio and her website www.claretebboth.com
