Artists Exhibiting At Our Art Fair
Clare May Martin studied Fine Art Painting at Chelsea. Given paint and an empty space, the course gave Clare ultimate freedom to grow and develop her own style.
During the 3 year course her work evolved towards strong composition structures without any pictorial reference. Encouraged by her lecturers, who included Chris Ofili, she pursued the passion she was discovering for abstract work and theory, leaning towards the style of Abstract Expressionist and Colour Field Artists. Love of painting and paint itself drives the ambition to create
Despite a love of painting and a strong desire to create, her art practice unfortunately became a part–time pursuit due to the the realities of making a living.
In April 2017, after a successful career in International Fashion Sales, Clare made the decision to devote her time once again fully to her art. Now, looking to expand both her studio practice and theoretical studies, Clare couldn’t be happier.
