Claire Pountney


Having dreamt of painting for years, I found both the time and the courage (with plenty of encouragement from a friend) to pick up a brush in January 2017.  I have since shown work in several exhibitions, including two RSW Open Exhibitions.

Taking an intuitive approach, I tend not to plan ahead but instead react to what happens as the painting progresses. Working mainly in acrylic, I like to use many different tools - including brushes, sponges, knives and fingers – to apply the paint.  Texture is also an important factor in many of my pieces, again using various media to achieve it.
