Clare Thornton was my mentor and critical friend. Stephen Felmingham at Plymouth College of Art suggested I contact her describing her as "part of the PCA family". Despite being unwell, Clare shared her fierce intellect, deeply attentive listening and huge creative energy with me, meeting and corresponding with me until recently. I'm now on the last stretch of my MA. Clare's critical input is a significant factor in my success and I will never forget her generosity and insight, shared with lightness and humour.

I always remember very inspiring conversations with Clare when she was a studio holder at BV in Bristol. So sad to hear of her passing away, but happy to hear that her legacy will live on and help artists do what they need to do - to keep making art xx

I love the idea of the memorial residency. I myself was the participant of the John Gingell Award following his passing at g39 in 2012/13. Great stuff!

So sad to hear this news, I remember Clare as being strong, engaged and bold. Women like this are always such a positive force xxx

I remember being introduced to Clare so clearly, she was prismatic- warm-generous with a touch of impish sensibility. I will keep this image of her close. This residency speaks through Clare xx

Spike Studios, Spike Island, Bristol 30th April 2019

We at Spike Island Studios are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of the elegant, brilliant and generous artist, educator and friend Clare who continues to share her generosity with the wonderful Clare Thornton Memorial Residency xx

Clare was such a generous artist and friend, always willing to give her support to others. She will be much missed and this memorial residency seems the ideal way to remember her.

Clare's fascinating work with the University of Bristol Theatre Collection just drew me in and her enthusiasm was brilliant. Good luck to everyone involved with this Memorial Residency.
