A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

I’m Claire, a Visual Artist and @Eyeseethingsdifferently.

I am hugely inspired by nature and can often be found wandering the Norfolk coastline and Broads, getting up close and personal to the fascinating displays created naturally and being imbued with energy to create.

I play with paint, clay, fabric and natural materials and explore how we intuitively respond to nature and the environment around us.  I aim through my work, to make people stop and think about the environment and the impact our behaviour has, upon this finite - resource.

I am a staunch campaigner for talking about mental health issues and ending the stigma, so that myself and others, no longer have to suffer in silence.  

I have most recently been undertaking more of a Promethean practice including: exploring non-verbal communication & gestures, understanding energy fields & transference of energy and lastly the concepts & theories behind collective creativity and am looking to continue this work into 2021.
