Clare produces large scale stretched canvases which depict the urban fabric of our everyday lives. Her work combines a unique mix of photography, pattern design and digital imaging with the expression of outline, texture and relief through stitch. Her visual interest in the modern urban environment, is inspired by her former career in surveying and architecture, which constantly informs her choice of composition and detail.
