Working intuitively, Clare Emily seeks to embrace the essence of vast natural landscapes in her work, exploring the sense of depth and how light interacts with the sea. This is conveyed particularly by her impasto use of acrylic, applied with a palette knife to create layers and textural interest. The interplay of colour and depiction of weather also play a major role in her style. The result is visually aesthetic, crisp and contemporary, semi-abstract art.
Clare's work is heavily inspired by the British coast, particularly Chichester Harbour, which remains a primary influence. She is a self-taught painter, having originally trained as a cellist.
