About the Speaker

Claire Harrison

www.claire-harrison.co.uk

art@claire-harrison.co.uk

Claire is a full-time international fine artist, and due to artistic commitments, only teaches courses at the Guildford Institute which is probably why they frequently oversubscribed.  Claire also has a few private students supporting them through their academic courses and mentors fellow artists.  Claire enjoys sharing her passion and extensive technical knowledge of drawing, painting and work of the Masters.  Claire has a unique teaching style where she concentrates on each individual developing their own style with confidence.

Claire is inspired by the natural world; from the flowers she grows to the tiny insects in her garden.  Claire creates large colourful oil paintings that are painstakingly created with a small detailed brush.  She can spend anything up to 2 years on a painting because she studies her subjects from life through drawing and photography in her sketchbook before finally embarking on the final painting using her research and imagination.  Claire’s much sought-after artworks are in both public and private collections in the UK, Canada and China.

Claire works and lives in the heart of the West Sussex countryside with her husband and neurotic rescue cat and has an interest in the environment, horticulture, literature, walking, dancing, yoga, meditation and archery.
