Clare Brownlow studied Fine art and History of Art at Edinburgh university then followed at Leith School of art in 2008-9 where she specialised in atmospheric land and seascapes.
After the birth of her first son in 2009 Brownlow picked up a pheasant feather and fashioned it into a quill and started to paint with ink. She found the dynamic use of the ink added an energetic edge to her work. The feather skips across the canvas as the nib catches and flexes creating the directional splatter which gives her work such energy and life. Her paintings are renowned for being of a traditional subject matter with a contemporary edge.
Brownlow has been shortlisted twice for Wildlife Artist of the Year, has had collaborations with Purdey, Patrick Mavros, Pol Roger, Schoffel and more. Bronwlow is an artist to follow as her work.
Brownlows Pheasant Fight Club is an iconic piece as her fighting pheasants are what she is known for. Many artists have gone on to capture this dynamic composition. Brownlow only ever paints one Fighting pheasants each year.
Her work exhibits both in the UK and globally and her clients range internationally for both commercial and private.
