Art school called again some 20 years on (in between she had nine children, all home schooled), with Claire going back for her Masters at Aberystwyth in 2016. She is in the process of completingthat, but meanwhile, is paintingout of her skin, so much so that the excellent Shropshire gallery T wenty Twenty has recently taken her on as a gallery artist. Influenced variously by Peter Prendergast, Kyffin Williams and van Gogh, she has in fact arrived at a boldly personal style of landscape – richly coloured and expressively painted – and full of heart and affection.
