Claerwen Holland was born in Radnorshire, Wales.  She studied at Byam Shaw School of Art, under the direction of Maurice de Sausmarez, who awarded her the Principal’s prize for landscapes in oils.  She completed the National Diploma for Fine Arts and won The David Murray studentship in landscape painting, awarded by the Royal Academy, London.  Claerwen continues to live and work in both London and Wales.

She is primarily a painter of domestic still lifes and landscapes; the kitchen gardens of Wales or sandy beaches of the British coast.  She is inspired by the objects which surround her at home in Wales; freshly picked flowers from her garden, china ornaments, old toys and secret boxes.  More recently, Claerwen has found inspiration in and around Aberystwyth, capturing the comings and goings of people and everyday life, in a touching and beautifully observed way.

Claerwen has exhibited in many mixed shows, including the Royal Academy Exhibition and the New English Arts Club, and has had solo exhibitons in England and Wales. 

Claerwen Holland has been exhibiting with Thackeray Gallery since 1996.
