Claire Sayers

Claire Sayers is a contemporary artist living and working in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. From an early age Claire developed an interest in art which was always encouraged by her artistic mother.

She completed a Diploma in Teaching but realised her true passion was colour and design. This progressed to studying Studio Textiles, Colour Theory, and a Diploma in Visual Arts.

Her career has grown from allocating what time was available outside of raising a family to now painting full time from her home studio. Like many artists, there is never enough hours in the day to dedicate to her work.

Claire’s art has developed over the years with experimentation in a variety of mediums. A journey that has evolved to a technique of multi-layered, impressionistic landscapes on large to very large canvasses. This enables her to capture and translate the beauty of colour, the way nature intended, painting natural images in their most shimmering and vibrant form.
Claire believes art should evoke emotion, and attempts to convey uplifting and positive inspiration through her work.
