Clare Thatcher is a Contemporary British artist with a passion for painting. Her work is deeply connected with a sense of place, taking influence from the idea of liminal space in landscape. The locations she chooses and the focus of her attention is highly selective, personal and resonant of individual landscape features and associated thoughts, emotions and reflections. The emphasis is upon the sense of contemplation within place. Clare’s work aims to reference transition and consequences of perpetual flux within her oil paintings. Clare sees herself as an organic painter, enjoying the stuff of paint made from pigment, where surface and colour has become an important part of her practice.

Clare attended University of West of England 2011 - 2014, gaining a First Class BA Honours in Drawing & Applied Arts and Bath Spa University 2014 - 2015 gaining an MA in Fine Art. Clare has exhibited her work in Hasselt, Belgium, London, Northampton, Nottingham, Bristol & Bath. She was awarded 'The Drawing Lab Workshop', a collaborative residency at Aalto University, Helsinki between artists from the UK and Finland in 2013.
