Claire is a practicing artist with a degree in Fine Art and a PGCE in Art and Design.
After working in several creative industries in her 20s, notably in film and as an art consultant advising clients on art for spaces, Claire did a teacher training and started a career as an artist. In her 15 years of teaching she has taught both adults classes and in colleges including GCSE, A level and Foundation level Art and Graphic Design at the Fine Arts College, Hampstead.
She is commissioned and exhibits frequently and has several agents.
With a very contemporary and conceptually focused degree course, Claire can apply both modern and traditional theory and practices to her teaching. Her courses mainly study from life but students are encouraged to research artists, materials and techniques from a wide range of disciplines.
