Signatory member of the Australian Guild Of Realist Artists (AGRA)


Claire McCall is a self-taught artist; therefore, much of her painting process has developed intuitively over the years. Claire taught herself to paint primarily by reading art books, studying the work of the old masters and current local Australian artists, in addition to spending time developing her skills with a paint brush and palette knife. Having only the time to complete a handful of works in her earlier years, Claire began to seriously pursue painting in 2010.


Artist Statement:


"A bold approach to painting makes my work distinctive. Abstract or impressionistic backgrounds applied with a palette knife are combined with realistic subjects detailed in textured brush or knife strokes. My work captures everyday moments in time. Typically, a figure turned away from the viewer in a candid pose. The viewer is invited to complete the story..to fill in the blanks about time, place, thoughts and emotion".
