About Claire Brewster

I am a globally recognised multi media artist. I create delicate, soulful works filled with movement and fluidity.

I work in paint, paper and metal creating exquisitely beautiful artworks inspired by the world around me.

About Me
Since I could first pick up a pencil, art was the only thing I was really interested in. My journey to become a professional artist has involved living in Spain and Romania and working for a high profile architects practice, amongst other things, whilst always working away on my art.

I grew up in Lincolnshire and have been living and working in London for over 20 years. I’ve been pursuing art as a profession since 2000 and recently made the jump to work on my sculptures full-time.

I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to exhibit my work widely – from Manchester Art Gallery to Sydney, Australia. You can see my sculptures in public and private collections all over the world, including:

The Corinthia Hotel, London
The Hayatt Hotel, New Orleans
The Caledonian Hotel, Edinburgh

I have also been lucky enough to have my work published in many magazines and books including – Vogue, World of Interiors, Marie-Claire Maison, Casa de Arbitrare, Paper, Tear, Fold, Rip, Crease, Cut – Black Dog publishing and Underground Maps – Lund Humphries.

In 2012 I am please to say I was invited to be an inaugural member of the Perrier Jouet Art Salon and Prize. The salon meets twice a year and awards a prize to an artist/designer within 5 year of graduating.

Commission Me
I work to commission on both large and small scale projects. If you’d like to discuss a custom made piece please contact me and I’ll be happy to talk about the possibilities.

Public and Corporate Spaces
My work has been feature in hotels, cruise ships, medical centres, hospitals, restaurants and financial institutions.

Private Collections
I have also worked with many private collectors and have work in collections all over the world.
