The Artist
Claire is a self employed artist, currently based in Liverpool. She is highly motivated and committed to the continual development of her art work and creativity.
She studied Painting at Glasgow School of Art (GSA) and graduated in 2001 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art.

Claire is currently working on new drawings, printmaking and paintings for an exhibition at the Unity Theatre in April 2014. Click here for further details. The inspiration for the work has come from listening to music created by Andy Muir, who lives and works in Berlin. One track in particular, 'Bird Dub', led to Claire drawing birds, whilst listening to the music; letting the rhythms of the tune bring out the patterns in the flight.



Claire's work varies from day to day, and moves between the following areas:
