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 :)

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 :)
