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 :)

Absolutely loved this class. I was a complete beginner & Clare walked me through it gently, explaining absolutely everything as she went along so that by the end I had developed a decent level of confidence. Still need lots of practice, but I could not have had a better start. The kit was very well thought out too. I look forward to taking another of Clare’s classes soon.

Clare was generous with her time and clearly explained and demonstrated each of the steps, discussing techniques and tips. I thoroughly enjoyed this class and am very happy with the results!

I had such a great time taking Clare’s course . She is so didactic, encouraging and has established such a great rapport with us students :) I’m not very artistic but Clare has really encouraged me to connect with my creativity and to develop my art work in my own pace and form. Thank you, Clare. I’m really looking forward to taking your next courses

My partner and I absolutely loved Clare's course! It's been many years since I have done any watercolour and I was expecting my work to turn out a total blotched mess, but with Clare's expert guidance and knowledge I ended up with a piece that I'm really proud of. My partner and I have framed our works and will put it up on our daughter's wall :-P
Definitely keen to do another one of Clare's courses soon! Highly recommend.
