Claire Chandler

United Kingdom


Claire Chandler was born in Hereford yet spent much of her childhood living abroad. This developed into a love of travel and experiencing new places. Claire graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from The University of Northumbria in 1997 with the Terry Stephenson Prize. She has since been runner up for the Celeste Art Prize, exhibited regularly and has work on permanent display in private and public collections in the UK and abroad. Claire comments, "My work is a direct response to my surroundings, visual memories of places I have lived, travelled to or explored. Colour, shape, and form evoke responses in both the artist and the spectator - often these responses are indefinable. Through a layering of colour and a richness of surface, I invite the viewer to wander and explore, creating their own personal journey." She currently lives and works in Carshalton, Surrey, where she has her own painting studio. Claire is passionate about promoting arts in the local community. As a fully qualified drawing and painting tutor at Sutton College, she also runs local workshops and private art classes.
