Claerwen James is a British painter. Her father is well-known author and critic Clive James.  She specializes in portraiture, in particular of young people. She usually paints from photographs and not from live sittings.  I like that her paintings are not overly detailed but there is enough to capture the person's essence and their expressiveness.
