Claire trained at the North Adelaide School of Art and is currently a board member of the Port Community Arts Centre. In the past she has been an Artist in Residence at The Parks Community Centre and was curator for the (old) Royal Adelaide Hospital’s four galleries.
One of her main focuses is design; and many of her paintings are largely design-based using colour, texture, shape and patterning. Many of her works are bold and dynamic while others are of a more impressionistic style. Claire is an artist whose works have broad public appeal and many of them have won awards and accolades from both art judges and the public alike.
