Claire Thacker is an artist with a passion for the weird and wonderful. She specialises in 3D animation and digital art.
She graduated from Edinburgh College of Art receiving a BA (hons) in Tapestry. Whilst here she was drawn towards digital media and Photoshop became her most powerful weapon. After this she went on to study at Glasgow School of Art, graduating with an MPhil in 2D/3D Motion Graphics.
Following this, Claire was picked from 250 applicants for one of five places on the Skillset/Creative Scotland funded training scheme, G.A.S.P (Generating Animation Skills Programme). This apprenticeship gave her invaluable experience working in Scotland’s animation industry and saw her working on a wide variety of projects including games, adverts, TV and short animations.
Since G.A.S.P, Claire has been involved with many exciting projects including the animated series, The Imp. Claire also help work on the multi award-winning short animation by Jessica Ashman, Fixing Luka.
