I'm a Yorkshire woman, artist, primary school teacher, wife and mother. I have lived for much of my adult life just below the Cumberland fells of the English Lake District; my favourite place on Earth. I currently live in the beautiful historical walled city of York, England where I teach in primary education.I have run silk painting workshops in my locality. I have painted for years on silk but I have recently enjoyed painting acrylics and discovering the possibilities now available with digital art applications.

As a Christian I am inspired by the wonders of nature and the aim of my artwork is to convey and inspire a sense of awe and wonder in creation. We live in a busy fast paced world where it seems to be increasingly difficult to take time out to ponder or even think. I see, enjoy and learn so much from the tiny details in nature and my work aims to arrest the mind and provide an opportunity for deep reflection and contemplation. I particularly enjoy illustrating poems written by my husband Tony. I have included some of these joint creations in my gallery.

I find painting with vivid colours exhilarating. The 'scribble' which is found in a lot of my work helps to enliven and give a sense of movement and jubilation. It is my hope that my work awakens powerful emotions and points people to the God who originally painted the colours of the world with his incredible imagination.

I invite you to pause and wonder as you wander through my work. I hope something you see will awaken a thought, spark an action or delight your senses.

Blessings,

Claire.
