Interests and Personality

BiographyQualified in Graphic Design/Illustration what now seems a million years ago. Have always kept up with the painting but things happen to stop you pursuing the dream, now back painting again. Have done nothing but Silk Painting for lots of years but am now having fun trying out Acrylics and Gouache, 3 totally different styles, do they work. . . ?
InterestsArt of course, don't think I'd stay sane without it! Reading, anything murderous! I love books fullstop, I'm running out of bookshelves. Tattoos and other forms of body modification, some myself but there's always room for more!
MusicEclectic tastes. Anything from Mozart to Marilyn Manson and Maria Callas to PJ Harvey, with a bit of Bulgarian folk music thrown in.
FilmsTim Burton especially the animations, also Japanese animation, less manga more Spirited Away. Anything with a psychological edge but a few comedies too.
TelevisionDon't really watch much, if I do it's usually films or documentaries.
BooksCrime to 4th Century Japanese poetry. Art to crime! Too many to mention.
HeroesMost of my heroes are artists, Eric Gill, Grayson Perry, Peter Howson. . . the list goes on.

Hi! Listen, I have about 6 months to prepare for my first solo show, and I was hoping you could assist me. I will need to have at least 30 paintings to display. If you could, with as much honesty as possible, please name 2 of my completed pieces that you feel I should definitely show. Also, please share 3 things with me, based on my current work, (remember be honest), that you would recommend to me for improving my art in general. I am fine if you post this on my public board because it may be interesting to others. The feedback from other artist on this website is very valuable to me. Thanks! ~Marianne

Wonderful work Clare.


Mermaid is a lovely paintings, I enjoy your site, best wishes - ranjan


Thank you, Clare. Your words have been most uplifting for me. I have found that creativity has its own periodicity just as all other organic processes. Sometimes it is difficult for the artist to dance to his own rhythm. Best wishes, Robbie.


Hello, Clare, I hope this finds you well and doing fine. I would appreciate your viewing my new gallery on my profile 'All Hands' it contains 26 designs and I would love to hear your comments. Thank you and best wishes, Robbie.


I love your paintings, very bright and cheerful. "Beach Huts" and "Lighthouse" are my favorites. You and I have a similiar bio background. Visit my site when you get the time.

Hey Clare, just seen your mermaid, is that one of your new pics? x


Hello, Clare, thank you for visiting my galleries. I appreciate the kind words. You work is most inviting to the imagination and I will visit here often. I hope we may continue to correspond through this wonderful website. Best regards, Robbie.


clare, your large nudes look like majestic landscapes, I especally like "Large nude 2"Lenke


Greetings - nice work - I like your quote - infact whole world at present is at very low frequency and some of us are trying to raise the frequency higher!


Delicate shades and well conceived ideas. Thanks for sharing. Please visit my profile, Robbie.


Hi Clare, You do good paintings and I'd bet you could find a large market for the Erotic pictures -such as the ones in Corsetts. In fact, I'd bet you'd get a lot of visitors to your "Erotic Art" web-page if you get one. Just name if "Erotic Art" or something like that. Thank you, Moonsman_78
