Chloe has always planned to be an artist. Her childhood was spent in
Great Bardfield where there were several artists of note including her
own parents. As early as she can remember she was accustomed to wandering
into neighbourhood studios. The absorbed activity the rich scent of
paint and turpentine she took to be the normal way of life. The most
splendid of these studios belonged to Edward Bawden. Big white and utterly
marvellous. Edward Bawden was her friend since childhood; he introduced
her to the Curwen Gallery in the 1970s.
Her first solo show was in 1979 "Still Life in London and Paris"
at the Curwen Gallery and several more have followed since then in London
and Japan. She has also participated in various group exhibitions. She
has freelanced as an illustrator for the Sunday Times Vogue magazine,
Terence Conran Galleries, Lafayette German Vogue and Marie Claire. She
lives in a converted warehouse in Bermondsey near Tower Bridge.
