Claire utilises the technique of digital photomontage to create images which explore a 'Sense of Place.’
She records her journeys photographically and on returning to the studio combines, layers and juxtaposes the images she has recorded to create an imaginary scene. These new landscapes, which are explored and resolved through the design process are ambiguous in nature and reflect her personal response to, and memories of the place itself.
Strongly influenced by her background in textile design, she looks upon colour and texture as the fabric that binds the architectural elements, nature and fragments of memory together in harmony so as to convey a sense of place and time.
Claire presents her work in the form of limited edition prints, all of which are printed on Hahnemuhle archival paper, with UV resistant inks, both of which exceed museum standards for longevity in a print.
