Claire Lovell was born in 1971 in Caldicot, Monmouthshire where she grew up.
She is a self-taught artist that paints with oils - utilising the brush to transmit the energy and passion she feels for the natural world. She loves big, open, light spaces and big areas of colour. Claire enjoys painting coastal regions - the sea in particular with all its drama, changing light and movement.
Inland, Claire enjoys her local countryside and birdlife and is inspired when visiting the fish markets and fruit stalls with their exciting shapes and colours.
