Claire Harkess RSW

Claire Harkess was born in 1970 and graduated with a BA(Hons) from Glasgow School of Art in 1993.  She was elected as a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW) in 2005.

She says: "Painting in watercolour offers a unique directness. The essential qualities of light and energy ever present in the natural world are the very essence of the medium itself. In search of a simplicity and beauty through the painting of a line, shape, colour, the process is immediate and instinctive. Remaining true to both medium and subject, with every brush mark visible, I strive to allow the paint the freedom to speak for itself – thus creating a dialogue between myself, the viewer and the ever evolving work."

Claire has exhibited widely throughout the UK including Solo Exhibitions at The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh, Queens Gallery, Dundee. Maclaurin Art Gallery, Ayr and Open Eye Gallery, Edinburgh.
