Claire Somerville

I am a professional Artist currently living in Gobowen near Oswestry. I have always had a passion for art from a young child and with great encouragement from my parents I have continued to build on my skills gaining a BA hons Fine Art degree followed by a PGCE Secondary Art teaching qualification. I happily taught secondary art for 10 years and in 2017 opted to become a full time artist. The majority of my work now derives from private commissions, mainly pet portraits which I love. Growing up in rural Shropshire, I have always had a love for animals and nature.

‘Standing Tall’ is an original acrylic on canvas. I grew up looking onto this nature reserve in Ash near whitchurch. It is is a place that reminds me of ‘home’. This is one of my favourite places to walk, it is truely beautiful! Such a tranquil spot to enjoy nature in all seasons!
