Claire Podesta's painting are available for sale online and in our gallery at Wychwood Art. My paintings are abstract works in oils or acrylics on canvas and paper. They are multi-layered and textural with bold brush strokes. My focus is on the process of making a painting, which is a meditative intuitive experience where the outcome is often unexpected. The coasts of Britain, the southern Mediterranean and the landscapes of the Chiltern Hills often provide my inspiration. Turner - described by John Ruskin as 'the father of modern art' - is a huge influence on my work and I can spend a whole day immersed in the Turner collection at Tate Britain. Originally from Cambridgeshire and Hong Kong, I now live near Oxford, where I practice from my studio. I received a BA (Hons) degree in Graphic Design at De Montfort University, following which I worked as graphic designer and ran a furniture design business with my husband whilst raising a family.
