Clare Winchester

Born in rural Sussex in 1960 Clare grew up in the deep countryside, and the wild beauty of nature has been her inspiration ever since.
Her work leans towards the abstract. The work is contemporary, atmospheric and evocative. It immediately draws the viewer in with its emotional appeal and movement that invites exploration. With the wide use of a variety of techniques, drawn from long experience as a printmaker and painter, Clare builds up layers of colour and texture by using oils  on a waxed board. The work evolves from memories of walks and places experienced.  Typically she uses mixed media and a rich, yet subtle, palette of colours to create pieces which vividly convey a sense of place.
