Claire WiltsherClaire Wiltsher received her masters degree in fine art from Northumbria University and since then has built a growing reputation, reflected in her awards and prizes. In 2010 the Society of Women Artists awarded Claire the ‘Rosemary and Co’ annual award. Also that year the Royal Society of Marine Artists selected Claire’s work for exhibition at the Mall Galleries. In 2011 her work was selected for the national collection at the House of Lords. She was a finalist for the Cork Street Open in 2014 and shortlisted for the Gemini prize from a worldwide field of over 750 artists. In 2017 Claire won the Hampshire Landscape Artist of the year. Most recently, in February 2018, Claire won Artists and Illustrators Artist of the year 2018 from a field of 2400 entries and 50 finalists.

Claire draws inspiration from the likes of Turner and Pollock, resulting in impressionistic paintings with an elegant, dream-like quality which invite the viewer to project their own meaning and detail. Her paintings explore differing viewpoints of sea and land, responding to light, height and energy but eschewing the desire for total recognition.

We show Claire’s work all year round as part of our gallery collection and in select exhibitions. In May 2018 we will be holding a Solo Show of Claire’s wonderful work.
