Clare Russell is a mixed-media artist based in Fife.

As a keen walker and birder she spends many hours outdoors, observing and sketching the landscapes and nature around Scotland.

Back in the studio she works directly from her sketches, creating paintings using layers of collage, found objects, ink and acrylic paint. Her loose, abstracted style retains the feeling of being outside and reflects the strong connection Clare has with the natural environment.

Clare's paintings can be seen at The Aberfeldy Gallery, Aberfeldy and at The Quay Gallery in Aberdour.
