More about Claire Baxter:
Claire takes many location photographs, edits and sketches them and develops a tale for the characters. Her influences are artists such as Jack Vettriano and Beryl Cook. She loves to use colour in her work as it enhances the fun element to her paintings. She rarely reveals the characters faces as it encourages anonymity and allows the viewer to narrate the picture and make it personal to them!
Claire Baxter has worked with many galleries and currently work closely with Whitby Galleries, Art in the Mill in Knaresborough and The Coastal Gallery in Northallerton. She has also exhibited at Ripley Castle, Living North - York, The Great Yorkshire Show, Country Living Show, Art in the Pen in Skipton and The Edinburgh Arts Fair and The Glasgow Arts Fair.
