Clare’s love of drawing and use of line lend themselves perfectly to her work as a printmaker. She produces her handmade original prints at West Yorkshire Print Workshop where she also teaches weekend screen print courses. Screen printing allows Clare to transfer the lively original drawings often taken directly from her sketchbook produced whilst on her travels, onto both paper and canvas enabling her prints to maintain this great sense of spontaneity. Within many of her screen prints Clare combines elements of hand painted acrylic and watercolour resulting in each print being a truly individual piece in itself.
Clare also produces drypoint prints, a method of intaglio printmaking as she enjoys the rich velvety line quality it achieves. Some of these prints also combine elements of
chiné-colle allowing Clare to introduce subtle areas of colour and
texture into her compositions.
