Favourite artist: A. J. Casson
Her teachers write: Claire has recently discovered A.J. Casson, thanks to her much loved grandma. Claire immediately fell in love with his work. She was inspired by his unique style. In her words, “his art is realistic and yet not. His lines are soft and clean.” Claire was struck by how smooth his brush strokes were and his use of perspective and contrast. Her art reflects the impact his art has had on her.
