My name is Claire Ogden and I’m an artist who lives by the sea in Falmouth, Cornwall. I’m the owner and founder of Saltdragon, a business established in 2015 to sell my artworks.
I started my working life as an accountant and have spent the last twenty years as a project manager, leading teams delivering technical development and design projects for clients in the UK, Europe and US.
Now it’s my turn to get creative!
I’ve always loved taking photographs and for a long time I enjoyed accurately capturing the true beauty and details of nature, particularly butterflies and wild flowers. Over the last couple of years my work has become more abstract as I’ve experimented with patterns, textures, shapes, light and colour to create unique images with atmosphere and lasting interest.
Now I particularly enjoy the results from photographing water, especially the sea. I use different techniques to create abstract images that reflect the ever changing form of water.
Cornwall is a good place to live for that inspiration to be renewed every day, adding new images to the Saltdragon portfolio.
I hope you enjoy looking at the sample of my work on this website and if you would like to know more then please get in touch.
