Lawrence, Kansas

Clare Doveton is a painter who creates ethereal landscapes inspired by the unfettered skyline of the Flint Hills and her love of seclusion within the natural world. 

Clare Doveton obtained her BFA from Parsons School of Art and Design in New York City in 1998. After exhibiting on both coasts, Doveton moved to Lawrence, Kansas where she currently paints in the Warehouse Arts District of Lawrence. After eleven years of living in  congested urban environments, the tranquility of rural environments heavily influences Doveton's work. She paints large-scale skyscapes that depict the complexity of open sunrises, the shimmer of a swift moving sunset, and the luminosity of a distant gas station seen miles away on a country road. Her lucid, dream-like oil paintings capture these moments and her continued interest in nature and conservation. 

Doveton’s work can be found in private and corporate collections nationally and internationally including The Art of Emprise, Quest Financial, New School University, NOVA Financial, and others. She has served on the Board of Directors for the Kansas Zen Center and the Lawrence Arts Center, and she was selected as the 2015 Featured Artist for the Lawrence Arts Center Benefit Art Auction.
