My Mindful Book of ABCs and Today an Elephant I Will Be.
Clare Wasserman Illustrator
Clare Wassermann hails from the very middle of England and has been painting and sketching since childhood, but more recently has worked in acrylic and oils on a larger scale. She loves the idea of layer upon layer in paint and collage evoking memories and experiences. Some paintings have ten or even twenty layers built up and most are in response to her meditation and yoga practice. All are a pure celebration of her external and internal landscapes.
Juxtaposition of edges and color combinations excite her. Sometimes she works in fabric and stitch for even more texture. Clare uses her intuition, as far as possible, to take her on the journey towards a final balance point. This art practice becomes a metaphor for life.
Good Morning World, Life is a Rainbow, The Bright Blue Balloon, and Love is the Moon the Stars and the Sky.
