Clare Russell is a full-time artist based in Fife.

As a keen walker and birder she spends many hours outdoors, observing and sketching birds in their natural habitats around Scotland.

Outside she sketches mainly in pencil and watercolour. Back in the studio she works from her sketches to create acrylic paintings on board or canvas. Her confident, painterly 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, Aberdour.

Please note that Clare does not sell prints of her work; she only sells original paintings.
