Claire Furlong

"The Quarry is my quiet sanctuary, far removed from the commercial realities of life."

Claire is an Architect and creative artist. Her interest in art started at an early age and continued with the creation of abstract pottery sculptures inspired by natural form. She qualified as an Architect in the UK and practices in Whangarei specialising in educational buildings and environmentally friendly housing. At studio 12 she mainly paints, today, inspiration for her work comes from translating abstract thoughts and ideas into a visual medium.
