Statement

"In the tradition of many Scottish painters, I am inspired by the physical qualities of oil paint and the endless possibilities it provides in terms of colour, movement and texture. My recent work continues to explore the patterns and spaces we see all around us in the ever-surprising weather, the rotating seasons, the abstraction of the landscape and the astonishing forces of nature.”

"Clare Blois is clearly in command of her medium and combines passion and technique in equal measure"
(The Times)
