Trained at Slade School of Fine Art, London University, exhibiting widely since then and winner of many prizes. Clare paints from many subjects, but landscape is the in marrow of her bones. She says 'imagine you are an early hominid and you've swung out of the forest to the edge of the savannah -how would you feel as you rose upright on your legs and looked out across the landscape to the horizon for the first time?' This is how Clare reacts to the landscape around her. Clare teaches private courses.
