Meet the artist

Claire Chandler is a contemporary abstract painter and art tutor based in Carshalton, Surrey, who has exhibited widely throughout the world. She has been shortlisted for the Marshwood Arts Award (2019) and Celeste Art Prize, took part in the Arts Travel Award to Quimper and her work is currently hanging at Mall Galleries, London (ING Discerning Eye).
Claire graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from the University of Northumbria with the Terry Stephenson Purchase Prize.
She says: “Through painting I convey my experience of the landscape. I aim to describe a space, what it is to move through, round and over a landscape, touching and being touched by the elements. Drawing the landscape is at the heart of my work, and this is where I begin, working in charcoal on location. I find that drawing ‘en plein air’ is a more solid way of absorbing the sense of place, the sounds and the calm I feel when I am surrounded by nature.”
Claire has paintings in private collections worldwide, including New York, Singapore, Paris and Hong Kong.
The Horton Café will be open from 9:15am to 4pm for refreshments. Lunch can also be pre-ordered on arrival, if required.
