I am an experienced teacher of art, mainly working with students in the 16-19 age range. I have a very wide range of skills available as an artist, but my strengths as an artist/ teacher are in drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, Photoshop/digital photography, mixed media and surface pattern design. I taught art in a college for 15 years (until 2019) teaching and course leading the Foundation Diploma in Art & Design, teaching A-level Art (and Graphics and Photography some years ago), and life drawing classes. Please email me through the contact form below to enquire about my availability for workshops or private/small group tuition.

“Thank you for creating such an amazing space. I have loved being here - it’s my therapy space and I feel so much lighter and joyous when I leave. As for your teaching, I don’t think I’ve ever learnt so much from doing it! Amazing - you are a gift Claire. Bless you, you phenomenal woman!”
“I have learnt more in your art class than any others I’ve ever had. Definitely the best teacher and I love your work so it always inspires me. Thank you!”
“This class has been just what I needed after I stopped teaching - to get back in touch with drawing and push the boundaries. Fantastic teaching - just the right amount of instruction and leaving to it. Thank you!”
“Thank you so much Claire for your support and patience, and definitely your sense of humour in dealing with me! Have learnt so much.”
“Thanks for your patience in getting me to be creative in an ‘artistic’ way and out of my usual comfort zone! You have helped me get back to drawing and painting after my school days”
“Always praise before correction - which gives me inspiration to carry on. This class always takes me out of my comfort zone, which is what I need”
Thank you so much Claire! I’ve loved coming to your classes, it’s so welcoming and inspiring. I’ve learned so much in the short time I’ve been here.”
