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.
