Claire Reika Wright
Bridport, United Kingdom
I was born in England, and having spent many years in Australia I returned to live in Oxfordshire in 2001. I moved to Bridport in Dorset in 2018. For the past 26 years I have had a career as an artist and composer, sometimes supporting my art by working as a curator for local galleries, teaching digital art and by undertaking graphic design and book illustration commissions.
I studied fine art in the early sixties with Frank Potter R.A. and obtained an HNC for graphic design in 2005. My work has been long listed four times for the global Lumen Prize and I was short listed in 2012 and 2014. I was short listed for the Ironstone Art Prize in 2016.
