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 at Wirelife. I originally started Wirelife to work alongside my art tutoring job, creating cards & flowers in wire & paper, but the last four years has seen my love for animals & art evolve Wirelife into a painting business. I now create realistic pet portraits & wildlife paintings in oils and mixed media in the unique style of 'Cerysanne', my alter ego.
Each year my confidence and artistic skill has grown as more opportunities have arisen. The last year has been an amazing journey in particular, seeing my work exhibited as part of two open exhibitions, being awarded a highly commended at one of those events, having an article printed in the American 'International Artist' magazine & hosting my first ever pop up shop. The next few months will see me hosting the pop up shop again & starting to display my work in a local shop.
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
