I am a Sydney-based exhibiting artist with a beautiful art studio set within a large subtropical-inspired garden in Sydney's Inner West.

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. I work in materials such as clay, bronze, silver, wax, wood, aluminium, polyurethane, plaster, resin, concrete and even patillage (sugar-plate)! For two-dimensional works, I paint in oils, acrylics and watercolour. For drawing, I generally use lead pencil, pen and ink, charcoal 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 equivalent) 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, 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 :)

Wow! Clare has an incredible knowledge of bones, shadows & watercolour. She took me on a journey & I was surprised with what I achieved with her guidance. I particularly appreciate that each workshop Clare teaches has different details & techniques demonstrated. I am building my watercolour skills. Thankyou

This class was everything I needed to get a head start on learning how to use watercolor paints! Clare was very welcoming and professional, she was very accommodating with my pace and my questions. The materials were quality as well. I'm very happy with the outcome of my painting and most important, the knowledge I gained through this class! Highly recommend to those who would love to learn the art of watercolor (with a twist of human anatomy)

Great class, I had heaps of fun! Quite comprehensive and easy to follow directions from Clare. I also feel that the end result of my color painting skull was good too. I will definitely frame it

What an excellent class, the teacher was fantastic! Clare took her time to go through each step thoroughly and patiently waited so every student understood and kept up to the same section. Although my painting looks nothing as good as hers I had a great time learning :)
