Artist’s Profile


In 1997 Claire Jefferson gained a diploma with merit in Interior Design. This was the culmination of a long and varied period of art and design studies which included Graphic Design, Illustration and Fashion & Textiles (in which she won the Fashion Prize for best student in year).

Artist’s Statement


I have always painted for my own leisure and pleasure and now, with the luxury of time, I’m able to indulge that passion freely. I live in a beautiful part of France and the surrounding countryside provides an endless source of inspiration for my work. The awesome majesty of the mountains, the ever changing agriculture and the luminosity of the landscape never fails to captivate. As a keen photographer I have great joy in capturing these images and I use them often as an aide memoire but my primary desire is to encapsulate the feeling that one can only experience by being there. Through the use of colour and composition I seek to evoke the beauty and diversity of this amazing backdrop. My joy is complete when someone looks at my work and ‘gets it!’
