As an artist, I can be my own worst critic, so being recognised for my talent by Theo Paphitis & the SBS team is a fabulous experience. The idea that my work is being seen by so many people is inspiring.
I'm Claire, the artist behind the easel. I originally started mu business to work alongside my art tutoring job, creating cards & flowers in wire & paper, but the last decade or so has seen my love for animals & art evolve it into a painting business. I now create realistic pet portraits & wildlife paintings in oils and mixed media in my very unique, realistic style.
Each year my confidence and artistic skill has grown as more opportunities have arisen.
I'm currently progressing my work & reach with the motto '20 seconds of courageousness'. If like me, you feel out of your comfort zone applying for new things or trying out a new idea then just remember it just takes 20 seconds to start/apply & who knows where that may lead.......it brought me here
