Daisy Clayton is a largely self taught, contemporary artist from Oxfordshire. Before pursuing her art professionally in 2019, she graduated from Queen Mary University London with a Masters Degree in psychology. Using her background in psychology, she built upon her previous skills as a painter by focusing her interest on how a painting can make someone feel and the emotions it may evoke. She paints with acrylics to depict a balance of calming tones and contrasting colours. Specialising in landscapes, cityscapes and seascapes she uses texture and gold leaf to create depth, capturing the viewer by inducing memories, emotions and unique interpretation. Daisy's paintings have been featured on the Artistic Impressions page of Conde Nast's design and decoration magazine The World of Interiors September and October 2020 issues and the January/February 2021 double edition of GQ magazine.
