Claire West. A Colourful Artist of Nature.

July 10, 2011

Claire West strikes me as a bubbly, effervescent and cheery artist, who’s work looks to be as bright,

surprising and emotive as it is bold, colourful and complex.

She explains ” I am a painter, who paints because it makes me happy and I hope that it does the same

for the viewer. I have a strong belief in the power of colour therapy in uplifting the spirit. ”

” I love colour and enjoy exploring its contrasts and its vibrant and intense nature. In working in colour

I like using colours that are often believed to not work together, in doing this I hope 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.”  Just look at these rich pinks, blues and oranges.

” I usually work on canvas in acrylic and inks, I produce textured work through layers of paint and

random dripping of inks. As the painting develops I will discover happy accidents which have evolved

and help to form the finished painting, often dictating where detail will happen. ”

There’s a beautiful range of styles and subject matter from birds to meadows and still life to seascapes.

I particularly love portrait painting below called ‘The Croft’, what amazing colour and perspective.

I know she’s a talented and clever artist because  not only has her work has featured on many television

programmes, like I.T. Crowd, Life of Riley and Eastenders, but she’s also a loyal reader of my blog :-).

Many thanks and keep up the great work Claire.
