ART EDIT: How have the past few months shaped your art practice?
CLAIRE: Isolation was a positive time for us. We converted the room formerly known as the dining room to a full-time studio and art-print-dispatch area. We had had a rough year with my husband’s ill health and a very premature baby, so it was a slower pace – enjoying family life. I think the joy we found together really elevated my work to a new level. My studio has easels made from old farm fencing by a family friend, fresh flowers for inspiration and floor to ceiling windows for natural light. I have a view of our untamed backyard – wildly overgrown – which I love.
