Claire Oxley - Towards Holkham
Claire is a Norfolk based artist who studied at the Norwich School of Art, and the Universities of Oxford and Lancaster. A synaesthete with a particular sense for colour and sound, she uses music as a starting point for many of her bold, abstract paintings.
Inspiration for Towards Holkham:
After the villages beyond the Northern outskirts of Norwich, the vegetation suddenly changes; a sandier soil, a hardier type of plant, and a coastal species of tree. Childhood visits to the sea are relived when journeying this way: Holkham has one of Britain’s finest beaches, stretching far beyond the line of pinewoods and scrub.
