claire peckham 


I am an artist-writer from Seattle, Washington. I earned my BA in English and BFA in Photomedia from the University of Washington in 2015, and my MFA in Fine Art from the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford in 2018. My work explores negative space and how it operates within the contexts of language, history, gender, and landscape.
