Susan Clare paints in watercolours, acrylics and mixed media, drawing inspiration from Jamaica’s tropical environment, where she made her home for over 30 years and, more recently, from the English countryside of her native South East Essex. Moving home renewed her awareness of the subtle colours and fresh charm of temperate climes. The themes in her work span two continents, but in common, they encourage mindfulness and a reverence for life in its natural, graceful simplicity.
A full time artist since 1997, Susan started painting traditional realistic watercolours and specializing in portraits. More recently, she has added an exciting range of contemporary acrylics, both figurative and abstract, to her repertoire.
She has exhibited in many solo and group shows in Jamaica, Florida, London, (including the Mall Galleries), and in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. She was the resident tutor at the Butterfly Arts studio in Terling for four years and runs her own fortnightly workshops at HOFS in Hadleigh, Essex, during the summer months. She also runs full day workshops for the RHS Hyde Hall and the SAA, including their live workshops, live-streamed across the UK to the membership. She is available for talks and painting demos for art clubs.
In future, her aim is for her work to play some influential part in protecting our natural heritage, to encourage deep connection with the environment and have fun exploring creativity and conscious awareness.
Her work is at JMMB Investment Bank in Montego Bay, the World Bank in Kingston, Jamaica, the Grandhotel-Lienz in Austria and can be found in private collections in Jamaica, the Caribbean, England, USA, Canada, Europe, Australia and Iceland.
