Clare Henshaw (1964 -) is a British artist known for her work with glass and more recently painting and textiles. She works easily with people and will inspire and affect you with her enthusiasm as she talks about colour and paint, demonstrating how making even small changes to rooms can transform a space. Her work is an exploration of light and colour bringing personality and atmosphere to interiors. Her painted murals have emerged from years of mixing natural paints and working with pigment. She is a colourist with an extensive knowledge of natural paints. Bringing art into living, her use of colour is instinctive and often surprising as she creates site specific work with a sensitivity to the location and budget.
Graduating in 1990 from the Royal College of Art Clare has won many awards including the Comité Colbért design award, and the Adrian Sassoon award. Her work has been exhibited internationally and purchased by a number of private and public collections including the V&A and the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. She lives in Wales close to the Black Mountains.
