Peter Stiles workshop for the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon as part of New Expressions

I’ve collaborated with Claire for more than 5 years on different aspects of large-scale projects to enable artists to work with museums on major commissions to unlock the creative potential of historic collections. She’s a great colleague and counterpart: imaginative, can-do and totally reliable. She is a skilled analytical thinker and writer. I particularly admire her ability to undertake the evaluation of complex programmes, with multiple partners and tight resources. It can be hard to really get inside a project and analyse what went well and what not so well non-judgementally: but as the evaluation report of New Expressions 2 demonstrates, this is one of Claire’s strongest skills“.

“Claire is talented, creative and resourceful, with a deep understanding of the arts and culture. 


Claire turned an impossible situation into something that was not just bearable but genuinely inspirational. With the creation of the New Expressions project, she not only gave a dying regional agency a renewed sense of purpose; she also ensured that MLA South West had a lasting legacy. 
Claire has real spirit, tenacity and integrity. I cannot recommend her highly enough”  Director of Communications, MLA South West

“Claire has great understanding of creative practice and the needs of the artist whilst maintaining a strategic overview of a project’s goal and ambitions. She addresses issues and concerns in a considered and consistent way”   Project worker, Aune Head Arts
