Claire Rice -Painter

Claire Rice is a Devon/Somerset based painter.

Often working as a gallery artist, she has just completed an 'Artist in Residence' term in a large gallery on The Barbican in Plymouth.

Now working from her own gallery 'Red Hat' in Wellington, Somerset, she paints in situ and also promotes and sells the work of others.

As a founder member of the Wiveliscombe Art and Craft Co-operative, the new gallery has been called Red Hat to keep alive the ethos of selling high quality, locally produced arts and crafts. Claire has a background in engineering and architectural design which can be seen in her paintings.

More interested in the way we collonise the landscape than the landscape itself, her works are often city scapes and often feature buildings of all kinds.

Claire also has an interest in the seafront fishing villages that are scattered along the Devon and Cornwall coastline, and many of them have been painted by her. The Somerset landscape and it's moorland villages are a great inspiration, as are the people all around where Claire currently lives on the edge of Exmoor.

All her works are available as limited edition prints and most are produced as high quality art cards.

Commissions are welcome.
