Born in Lowestoft, England's most easterly point, Claire Dowson has returned there having retired from teaching. She studied art in Camberwell and now uses a mix of oil and watercolours on a mix of subjects, including flowers and sky scenes.
Her strong attachment to the sea is evinced in those paintings that take an intimate approach to the subject of water. Immersing yourself in her lapping waves can feel as soothing as a day at the beach. Fancy a paddle? We certainly do!
