Clare has drawn and painted animals all her life. In her work, she likes to capture animals at times of solitude. When the animals are totally at ease and there’s a gentleness or a vulnerability about them. In these moments, she feels that they are sharing something secret and intimate, that they share only with her.
Clare uses oils, acrylics, watercolour or, probably most often, coloured pencil. Whatever the method or medium, they are tools to preserve that moment of extraordinary beauty.
Once she's there, once she's caught it, she wants to pass it on. She wants other people to see what she saw, and to feel what she felt. Her job, as she sees it, is to create an emotion.
Born on Wirral in 1963, Clare’s status in the top tier of the wildlife art genre is long-established. She is in heavy demand from galleries wanting to show her work. A regular at the national exhibition of wildlife art, Clare has been three times nominated for wildlife artist of the year. Her work appears in collections both at home and internationally.
