Clare Shepherd is an artist and a painter who lives and works on The
Cranborne Chase in Dorset. She studied at The Slade School of Fine Art and was The Slade
Prizewinner for her graduating year. She exhibits in Dorset on a regular basis and
further afield usually once every two years. Clare taught for the Dorset Adult
Education Service and Bath University for many years but now all her teaching is
privately done including some e-learning (email for details) and a vibrant summer school.
Clare considers her teaching an important part
of her career and has very definite ideas on how and what to teach.
Below: I was given a dead buzzard recently which I brought into my studio as quickly as possible to paint from. Although many things end up in my freezer, this one was just a bit big and a bit too mussed-up...lovely nonetheless.
