Capturing Cornwall


Clare Mills

Clare is a new contemporary seascape artist living and working in North Cornwall.

Her paintings are inspired by the colours, people, shapes and shadows of the coastline from an aerial perspective and she aims to capture the feelings of joy that being by the ocean can provoke in all walks of life.

Having studied Art & Graphic Design, Clare ventured off in her early twenties to backpack around the world. Her love for the ocean quickly grew as she began exploring some of the world’s most beautiful beaches in countries such as Australia, Thailand, Bali, Canada and Central America and she continued to paint as she travelled, selling her work or gifting
paintings to friends and family.


Clare feels incredibly lucky to have made her home in Nansledan, Newquay, and is inspired on a daily basis by the stunning Cornish coastline and this is reflected in her “ocean inspired art from above”.


Clare creates affordable, unique art that brings a sense of both calm and happiness – “I hope my paintings make you feel like you have taken a great big breath of fresh sea air; like you can feel your worries and stresses washing away out to sea”. Clare continues to build her collection of coastal art whilst working on private commissions. All work is also available as Limited Edition Fine Art Prints. Cards and other gifts will be available soon.
