Clare Riddington- Jones



I am an Australian born Artist who has been painting for over 25 years. I love
to create contemporary landscape paintings using lots of colour and texture to
add variety and depth to my paintings.. I use both acrylic and oils to achieve
my desired effect and I use my palette knife in most of my paintings.
I have had successful exhibitions in both Australia and New Zealand, the most
recent being two this year. I have won quite a few awards and my work is
collected by people in many countries.
In New Zealand I paint semi-abstract impressions of the beautiful mountains
surrounding me in my home in Queenstown. I have tramped in the mountains
for many years and they are a constant source of inspiration. In Australia I
paint mostly seascapes, outback landscapes, and birds, from my home in the
Sunshine Coast where the beaches and the bush are my inspiration. I am a
very keen photographer and therefore able to use my own photos for my
I hope you enjoy looking at my art and If you would like to commission a
painting in a size not currently available, please contact Julia here at Central
Art Gallery, for more details.
