Clare took what was a ‘perhaps something like this and that,’ sketchy idea and coloured it in with sheer artistic genius. Her work is beautifully intricate, woven together with great care and creative talent. She can take any idea and make it an actual thing of beauty. She really listens to the brief and offers lots of possibilities, is happy to try out something new but brings great experience of materials and techniques to the table.
Throughout the ‘Mills, Machines and Memories’ project, Clare has been a delight to work with. Her creativity and enthusiasm are inspiring and she has devised and delivered a truly unique project for us that involved dozens of local people, from those at school to care home residents. She is easy to collaborate with, open to discussions and ideas and especially brilliant at communicating during public workshops. She is professional and personable and an asset to any team. I would highly recommend Clare for any project requiring creativity and initiative.
Clare Taylor is a proactive artist who is always looking for opportunities to engage children and their families in high quality art projects. She came into our school to deliver a family clay based workshop as part of a Mansfield Museum project. She was organised and well prepared, as well as making an immediate connection with all the participants. I would not hesitate to work with Clare again or to recommend her to other schools.
