Born in 1968 (nee Brannigan) in London, in the middle of seven children, Clare was educated at Notre Dame and St. Pauls before finishing her schooling in Southport in the 1980’s. After her ‘A’ Levels Clare attended the Universite du Maine at Le Mans, France and there began her great love of European culture and art. In her pursuance for a ‘career which incorporated travel and ‘character building’ experiences, Clare chose to study Nautical Science in the north east and qualified as a Navigation Officer as Esso Internationals first female officer, and then subsequently BP Shipping. Her career continued shore-side as Liverpool Docks first female dock-master, radar officer and berth manager before finishing in 2003. Clare’s ‘splash’ back into the art world does not surprise those who know her as her artistic talent has been evident from a young child and as her artwork displays her designs are vibrant , enthusiastic and original. Clare is also the niece of the renowned equestrian artist Desmond Tallon.
