Passionate and WELSH.
Worked as a photographer for years in London - advertising, print and at the BBC in stills. Now I teach at The University of Portsmouth, UK.
Love my MAC and have become a Flickr Addict! I love using low-fi including using iPhone apps. Colour and line attract me and I love finding objects on the ground. Constantly experiment with texture, treatments and angles. Inspirational figures are Paul Strand, Walker Evans and Lee Friedlander.
Use mixed media and love my digital camera, japanese toys, good design, sweet music and running rugby...Welsh style :]
Author of the Creative Portsmouth book, owner of Twm the dog (Seasick Steve album cover). Contributor for Strong Island. www.strong-island.co.uk/
If you comment on any of my photos/videos then I would appreciate it if you didn't add dodgy graphics/awards. Thanks.

"Claire, proves through her photos, that there is an image everywhere, just waiting to be caught and expressed. Even the mundane is not quite that as mundane as you first through.
As well as the photos from her wanderings with Twm the (famous) dog, there is the Creative Documentalist, hellbent on connecting the many creative minds around her.
Well worth a wonder though the thousands of images."

my dog sighs says:
Live in Portsmouth/Southsea?
You MUST meet Claire!!!!
The most 'networking' friendly person I've ever met. So many doors have opened up since our meeting.
so many fingers in so many pies!
And she's bloody great fun too!"
