Clare Starmer

Local artist Clare Starmer came to talk to us about her work and her artistic life. (there were a lot more images but technical problems means I cant load them- sorry)

Clare describes herself as a Mixed media artist, and Arts and Artists facilitator, Artivist, cultural development officer for Birmingham City Council, An assessor (Arts) for Children in Need. (its amazing she has time to eat and sleep with that lot!) She has a BA Hons Degree in Combined Arts as well.

She is a member of Wolverhampton Society of Artists (and on the committee) and has taken part in Open Studios with them.  She is a founder member of the Junction Festival in Chapel Ash and has taken more of a back seat in this role now but has still exhibited there every year.  As well as this she is an Ambassador for the Asylum gallery. 

Great use of buttons.

lovely fun elephants

some watercolour experiments

this page in her sketch book made me laugh - don't we all feel like that sometimes?

included in her sketchbooks were some lovely works using machine stitch  on paper and interesting threads.
