Flight 3, 100x100cm

Welsh born Claire Wiltsher was an art lecturer and while teaching in Durham she completed her MA in Fine Art at Northumbria University. After a period of travelling, Claire has settled on the south coast, setting up her studio in the New Forest. A keen walker, she spends much of her time drawing and recording the landscape around her, adding her personal response in the studio. Her work is in the House of Lords and has been included in the Cork Street Open. Painting in an expressive, untraditional manner her work is based on a strong observation of nature. The majority of Claire's canvases are square, which she feels is important in creating a balance and harmony in her paintings. The work has ambiguous elements, however it shows strong structural compositions. She feels that "total recognition inhibits the imagination". Painting in oil and mixed media, many of her works combine layers of paint with fragments of collage. She scratches through sections of the painting to allow colours from underneath to emerge. "I want to create evocative paintings of land and sea that show a sense of place, different weather conditions are key elements," says Claire, who uses brushes and different size palette knives to build up layers and create depth. Creative Coverage published her book Journeys from the forest to the sea which is available directly from Claire, Creative Coverage or Amazon priced £9.50 + p&p.
