Venue 10

Claire Macdonald

OPEN: 4/5 & 11/12 SEPTEMBER

130 Portobello High Street

This exhibition in Claire’s garden studio will include figure and portrait painting and printmaking in woodcut relief and screen-printing primarily on the subject of birds and wildlife photographed locally and further afield.

Claire, this year, as a result of the lockdown and with an interest in portrait painting, renewed through participation in Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Week, shows examples of her portrait work, providing a new feel about the work on display this year. A morning walk round the promenade everyday through lockdown has resulted in some local observations and reference photos which she plans to incorporate.


Claire studied at Edinburgh College of Art and has a BA(Hons) in drawing, painting, printmaking. Since graduating she has had many years experience doing commission work. She also worked for around six years freelance in TV and Film, in the art department. Having now returned to painting and printmaking she set up her own business selling cards and prints in November 2011.
