Clare Donegan BEM

Clare qualified from Falmouth College of Art in 1995 in General Illustration and has become a multi award winning, internationally recognised military and animal portrait artist. In particular, she has enjoyed remarkable success creating bespoke rolls of honour for our Armed Forces in the UK and many other countries around the world.  Each roll of honour is meticulously hand painted and depicts the current serving solidiers names and battle honours hand written in calligraphy.

She was awarded the British Empire Medal for her services to the Arts in the 2023 New Year’s Honours List. Clare is the first female military artist ever to be formally recognised this way.
