Claire Burbridge

Born in London, Claire Burbridge grew up on the west coast of Scotland and in rural Somerset.

She studied for a BA in Fine Art and History of Art at Magdalen College, Oxford before returning to London to gain a Masters degree in printmaking at Camberwell College of Art. From her earliest recollections there was never a time when Burbridge considered being anything other than an artist. Housebound at the age of three with chicken pox, Burbridge drew a self-portrait complete with intricate eyelashes and facial lines-observation far beyond her years. Her art has a spontaneity that comes straight from the heart and yet is equally concerned with the minutiae of intricate detail.
