Claire Wiltsher is an award winning painter whose work was recently acquired by the House of Lords to be exhibited as part of their permanent collection. Her oil and mixed media landscapes combine layers of paint with fragments of collage. She scratches through sections of the painting to allow colours from underneath to emerge.
“I want to create evocative paintings of land and sea that show a sense of place – different weather conditions are key elements”.
