Claire Henley – Artist Research

A fine artist who studied a graphic design degree in London, and now is a freelance illustrator and designer and has been for over 20 years. Her mixed media paintings are mesmerising and really beautiful, the sea fronts and natural landscape look idyllic and has a lovely folk art feel to it. I would love to be able to paint a watercolour in her kind of style for my final piece, and from being to Penarth i now have lots of lovely photos to work from.

Most of the following images are created using mixed media. I use best quality acrylic paint, and the box canvases are protected with 3 coats of matte varnish and are ready to hang. I sign each piece C.Henley. I began to write as well as illustrate children’s books and still enjoy visiting schools and libraries to talk about the book making process. In recent years I have concentrated more on fine art rather than illustration, painting large canvases that are often inspired by the coast and the countryside.
