About the artist
Rankin’s love of colour and her naïve yet refined sense of nature came early. Raised in London near the Victoria and Albert Museum, she lost afternoons wandering the textile and ceramic floors. And as a child, she puttered about her mother’s oriental porcelain shop on Portobello Road. Her father, in advertising and film, collected stuffed owls.
Based in Northumbria, Claudia works mainly in ceramic form and creates collages when she has gathered enough material and scenes begin form in her imagination.
"Only the heartless would be able to resist Rankin’s work. Brightly coloured and a bit wonky, her creations remind me of the best efforts of a gifted yet slightly disturbed child, adorned as they are with a menagerie of animal characters simultaneously innocent and knowing.” Hugo Guinness, New York Times T Magazine
