Claire has been a dedicated botanical and natural history artist since 2004 and is passionate about this precise art form, using a variety of media (watercolour, graphite, ink or coloured pencil). She has been exhibiting annually (by invitation) at the BOTANICA exhibition at the Royal Botanic Gardens since 2007 and the Botanical Art Society of Australia’s annual exhibition since 2006. She has also exhibited pen and ink scientific illustrations in the Margaret Flockton Award. Claire was the botanic art tutor at Waverley Woollahra Art School 2012-2018 and has undertaken several commissioned works. She and some other botanic artists meet twice a month to share their love of art. She treasures the friendships she has made through her botanic journey.
