Clare was born in North Wales and spent her childhood in Rochester, Michigan. She graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor in Fine Arts & a minor in Graphic Design. Spending most of her time working in Advertising, painting became her true love.
Shortly after graduation she moved to Scottsdale, Arizona. It was there that her career as an artist would begin. The natural surroundings and organic shapes became a great infl uence. Working with several Interior Designers in the community, Clare’s specialty became creating custom artwork for commercial and residential settings.
She focuses on shapes, texture, and color to evoke emotions. Painting with large, quick strokes using acrylic paint, sand, and different varnishes on canvas. Her subject matter varies from abstract color fields to contemporary and organic shapes. As she paints, she lets her feelings within guide the brush until the personality of the canvas in unveiled.
Although custom artwork is her forte, she continues to explore and create original works on canvas.
