Claire A Milner has created art for celebrities, large corporations, advertising agencies and private clients around the world. Her 5ft x 5ft portrait of Marilyn Monroe, owned by Rihanna is featured on the Official Website of The Estate of Marilyn Monroe. Her Swarovski artwork has received global recognition, and her work is regularly published in books and magazines. Her artworks are held in private collections in Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Trinidad, U.K. & the U.S.A.
In 2011 Claire's artwork was chosen as a winner of a competition hosted by retail magnate and Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis and shortly after won a competition hosted by one of Britain’s most successful businesswomen; Jacqueline Gold. In 2013 her work was chosen for five separate featured collections with Saatchi Art by Rebecca Wilson, director of the Saatchi Gallery London. Her work was featured by Swarovski alongside prestigious designers in Swarovski Elements Magazine and her portrait of Amy Winehouse appeared in an exhibition in London curated by the Amy Winehouse Foundation to mark what would have been the late singer's 30th birthday. In March 2014 Claire's Swarovski crystal portrait of Queen Elizabeth II will be exhibited with the Rebecca Hossack Gallery at the Hong Kong Art Fair.
Claire is currently working on a new collection to serve as metaphors of our time. The works focus on endangered animals and symbolise an irreversible process which will ultimately affect the future of humanity through the decimation of important species due to acts of greed and vanity. These artworks include allegorical references, the co-existence of abstract elements with realist forms, literature and latin written as graffiti and the opposing aesthetics of precious crystals and mixed media. The collection will be exhibited in 2014.
