Enquire about Claire West

Claire is a North Yorkshire artist, who paints because it makes her happy and she hopes that it has the same effect for the viewer. She has a strong belief in the power of colour therapy uplifting the spirit.
Clare loves colour and enjoy exploring contrasts and its vibrant and intense nature. In working in colour she likes using a palate that is often believed not work together, in doing this Clare hopes to break down the boundaries of what we should do and explore the freedom that is so often lost in art when we are no longer children.
She usually works on canvas in acrylic and inks, Clare produces textured work through layers of paint and random dripping of inks. As the painting develops she will discover happy accidents which have evolved and help to form the finished painting, often dictating where detail will happen.
