I am a Sydney-based, exhibiting artist. I have a purpose-built, professional art studio that I teach from in Sydney's Inner West, set within a large subtropical-inspired garden. However, during these strange times of Covid lockdown, I am running a range of live streaming classes to help build skills as well as the community.

My life-long passion for making very fine artworks includes sculpting, painting, drawing, and textiles. I also have a passion for teaching others, and love to support those wishing to find their own creative journey - whatever that may be or whatever shape it might take!

Unusually, my practice is multidisciplinary, so I cover many aspects of artmaking using a range of different materials and skills. For example, working three-dimensionally, my skills include sculpting and mould making in materials such as clay, bronze, silver, wax, wood, aluminium, polyurethane, plaster, resin, concrete and even sugar! For two-dimensional works, I paint in oils, acrylics and watercolour. For drawing, I generally use pencil, pen and ink, and crayon in order to achieve great detail, but at other times, playful media, such as wire.

I hold a PhD and Master of Fine Arts (both 1st-class division) and a Graduate Diploma of Education. Along with private tuition in my studio, I've also taught in the Sculpture Department at UNSW Art and Design, within community adult education, and also rural and remote high schools.

My life is and has been artmaking! Come and join me for some serious fun in a friendly, inclusive, working art studio :)

I had such an AMAZING TIME doing Clare’s course
I’ve done the course with my sister-in-law, who has recently moved for a far away land. Clare’s course was such a great opportunity for us to bond and chat again, while also being creative.
Clare is a very encouraging teacher and has give me the tools to come up with a painting that I’m very pleased with
Thank you, Clare ! Looking forward for our next classes

Wow! Wow! I absolutely loved doing this class with Clare! She was so thorough and gave amazing direction to achieve different watercolour techniques. I loved having a finished product at the end that I can frame and hang. Clare was also extremely patient and was able to answer all questions - as well as giving lots of time. I will definitely be doing another of her classes. Loved it! Thank you, Clare

Rebecca Chalmers Oct 2021


Clare is a patient, friendly and thorough teacher. As an absolute beginner, I learnt a lot about watercolour painting and techniques. Class moved at a very reasonable pace. Clare was happy to answer questions and explained the process well. The kit was carefully packed and had a lot of great quality supplies to get started. Especially in lockdown, it's nice to sit down, be a little social, and try something new. Big thanks to Clare for sharing her knowledge!

Claire was amazing-- I was really hesitant to try watercolours again after not really connecting with them back in high school-- but painting with Claire's guidance, she personalised the experience and answered all of my questions along the way, and in the end had a wonderful experience. I also really like how the class works towards a work of art-- and not drilling painting just circles over and over again-- that you actually have a really lovely picture in the end to show for it-- I know mine is going into a frame on the wall. :)

This is my favorite class bento experience so far. I loved that the techniques were incorporated directly into the final painting. Clare provided excellent demonstrations throughout the class and was always willing to answer my questions. I can’t wait to try another class with her.
