Claire Wills

educational establishments since: from nursery; primary; secondary and further education to special schools and residential schools. Working as a facilitator, emotional coach, pupil support assistant, art teacher as well as a creative adviser.

I have travelled extensively, gaining inspiration from a wide variety of different cultures and locations such as: Tanzania; Budapest; Germany; Jamaica; Ireland; Isle of Man; the Channel Islands; Cornwall and rural Herefordshire along with Isle of Skye and various beautiful locations in Scotland.

I strive to create engaging contemporary interpretations through abstract ideas of places or scenes that I have experienced or photographed on my travels. I enjoy making paintings of wide – open spaces, which give a feeling of calm isolation where one can be lost in thought. Yet I also like to create images that demand attention and are full of a unique commination of pattern, texture, colour, nature and nostalgia – each work possessing an energy of a time and place in my memory.

Themes in my work are land and seascapes, castles, woods, flowers and portraiture, created with an array of bold bright colours. Spontaneity is an important quality in my work. I am inspired by Scotland’s rugged landscape and lush green fields. The huge dramatic skies, and shimmering endless seas provoke an emotional response in me that I simply must share through my art.
