Claire Martin

Claire Martin studied illustration at De Montfort University and gained a Degree in 1996.  Since then she has had work accepted at The Mall Galleries in London and at The Royal Norfolk Show.  She has exhibited in solo exhibitions and completed many private commissions over the years.  Her work has also featured in Artists and Illustrators magazine, International Artist and Leisure Painter magazine.


She has always been inspired by the horse but most recently by her love of Exmoor ponies.  Her watercolour and pencil pieces aim to show these amazing ponies at their best, full of movement and cheeky character.  Her work features on this year's Exmoor Pony Society Christmas card.  Claire is the proud owner of an Exmoor called Tommy (Tippbarlake Charlie Brown) who also provides inspiration!
