Claire Eva Burton
Claire Eva Button ranks, as one of Britains leading contemporary equestrian painters. Her paintings are realistic depictions of all that is powerful, dynamic and colourful within the racing world. Born in 1955, Claire Eva Burton had a passion for horses from her earliest childhood. She spent every available waking moment with the ponies at her local stables or sketching horses and landscapes with her inspirational and artistic mother. Whilst attending the Medway College of Art, she maintained her interest in horses, and in racing by riding out regularly in Epsom for leading trainers. Once she had finished college, she spent even more time at the stables, supplementing her income by selling equestrian paintings both to owners and trainers who were known to her and to the general public through tradestands at various racecourses. Following a painful fall, Claire Eva Burton concentrated increasingly on her painting and, in 1981, her work came to the attention of the directors of the Cheltenham Racecourse. At the age of 26, she found herself entrusted with a commission to paint a series of twelve pictures for Her Majesty The Queen Mothers private box. A one-man exhibition in Londons Bond Street soon followed, further establishing her growing reputation. Now, on the strength of her great popular success, Claire Eva Burton has been able to expand her artistic horizons to embrace new subjects and to explore new styles but she remains very much an artist at the peak of her profession.
