HALSEY, Claire

c.1960 - ?

Claire Halsey, studied textiles at Chelsea School of Art, and for some years worked as a designer for a small fashion company in London and was part of a local art group there where she pursued her love of painting, exhibiting every year. Since moving to Suffolk in 2002, Claire has continued to paint while creating and running her own shop in Norwich where she sold her own work. Claire paints still life from her kitchen table and using a muted palette in oils is now mainly interested in painting ceramics and flowers, the relationship between objects, the light and shadows they create. Having recently turned to pottery she enjoys throwing and making domestic ware, using sculpting techniques to create texture and experimenting with oxides and glazes to create a distressed and tactile feel to her work, which has a natural and soft colour. A full Member of the Suffolk Open Studios from her garden studio at Holly Bush Farm, Station Road, Brampton, Beccles, Suffolk.
