Now based in Gloucestershire, I draw my inspiration from the landscapes and animals I have encountered both on my extensive travels abroad and back at home in the UK. With many awards to my name, including BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year, I have exhibited throughout the world for over 35 years; with my paintings hanging in public and private collections worldwide. I have had the pleasure of illustrating various books over the years, and very fortunate to have been featured on TV several times .

Thrilled to be have had an article written on me in this month’s The Artist Magazine (November issue, available now)

I am very excited to launch my collection of luxurious cashmere shawls, with more designs in the pipeline. Inspired by my travels, these shawls convey my unique works of art printed onto the finest silk cashmere.  They make a wonderful present or a delightful addition to your own wardrobe….

I would like to invite you to 
Exhibition of  Paintings of  Cornwall

(Please click on links in navy boxes further down or click on Gallery in menu bar above to view online. Do please get in touch if you would like to view the paintings in person)

Five years in the making, my Cornish Collection is finally launched….
The exhibition showcases over 70 paintings created on my journey throughout Cornwall

Inspired by the rugged shorelines, the sparkling seas and the magical opalescence water of Cornwall, I am forever drawn to back the sea. Capturing the spirit of the scene before me and the magic of the moment, my paintings are my way of communicating  what I observe and feel in the evocative landscapes I so love to explore; in the hope that others may see it and experience it too.

I do hope my paintings find a place in your heart and your home

”These dreamy softly uplifting paintings would find a pleasing space in anyone’s memories of Cornwall. They are beautifully painted in translucent colours that capture the pure essence of the sea and land before our eyes.

In these pictures you can feel the wind , taste the salt and soak up the  heat that conjures forth; thus transporting us into these  gorgeous corners of Cornwall, truly  reminding us of halcyon days and holidays past and present . 

These delicate paintings should be a must have if you really want to live through a magical piece of artwork “  Claire Newlove
