Claire Miles

Art forms: 
Calligraphy, Printmaking
Seascape Skye

I have worked with a variety of printmaking methods including screenprinting, linocut, monoprinting, aquatint & drypoint etching on acetate. I also use pen & ink, acrylic painting, marbling & calligraphy. Images are derived primarily from local scenes and in Donegal. Calligraphic work is based around affirmative quotations from well-known authors. I studied BA Hons in English, Art, Psychology and Sociology before working as a Psychiatric Nurse for 22 years, during which time I worked on a variety of creatively therapeutic activities within a mental health setting. Over the last 5 years I have been developing my printmaking skills at the University of Hertfordshire day courses & Oaklands College evening courses. My aim has been to celebrate the beautiful landscapes around Hertfordshire & around our friends’ home in Donegal.
Literature has also been very important to me as a way in which we can feel meaningfully connect to our world and I have reflected this in my calligraphy.
