Claire is practitioner of Creative and Critical Thinking; an integral part of this is her work as a visual artist. She lives in Norwich, Norfolk, and studied at the Norwich School of Art, and the Universities of Lancaster and Oxford.

A synaesthete with a particular sense for colour and sound, she uses music and environment as a starting point for many pieces. Soundscapes, Landscapes and Mindscapes have become instruments for expressing composition, emotion, and understanding. Much of her work in centred on East Anglia; its skies, sounds, fields, coastline, and seasonal rhythms are a constant inspiration.
