Clare’s current series of work with a bird theme continues to explore her love of colour and texture and she felt this piece would sit well with the Little Sprouts charity auction.
About the Artist
Clare Matthews is an artist based in Porirua, Wellington.
She has been creating art for over a decade and has always been drawn to colour and texture.
She works in collage, paint and various grounds to create lively, vibrant artworks.
Her collage elements are hand made using a monoprinting technique to create texture and visual interest.
Claire’s recent work has a focus on natural forms and motifs such as leaves and birds, but to which she adds an element of quirkiness, resulting in a suggestion of folktale illustration.
There are dominant repeating patterns and shapes which all twist and combine to create what she aims to be joyful, decorative artworks.
