Ciao, I’m Clare!

I’m an artist, writer & magical thinker:

I love inspiring people to awaken their creative power

– not just painting and living like a happy artist –

being creators of their own profoundly beautiful lives.

no financial binds

all my time totally my own

owning my own home with no debt

able to travel wherever and whenever I want

able to enjoy the magic of the everyday without stresses

living in the effortless creative field, in tune with the divine creative intelligence!


I live the life that many people dream about, but it was all created out of pure intuition, and an often-non-existent budget!

Most importantly, I completely turned around the illness, poverty, chaos, severe anxiety and depression, grief and upheaval of my early decades.

I found my way by listening within, and by using art as a means of transforming all energetic blocks inside me.

Now I’m creating A BOOK SERIES and AN ACTUAL ART SCHOOL to share all the secrets, insight and practical tools about a happy and fully creative life!

Sign up on PATREON now, to hear all about it.

I grew up in a village of 10 cottages, on a Scottish island

me + larry, isle of arran, 1977

Isle of Arran 1977

I’ve been developing life philosophy of SPIRALLING UPWARDS from an early age

my brothers + I returning from school, margo sandeman painting from 1983me and brothers coming home from school © Margo Sandeman 1983

I don’t like art much, unless it is by children or wise, intuitive, deeply-sentient folk! I love art from people not working from the ego!

I know that creativity is essential to our individual wellbeing, our collective evolution, and our very survival as a species


I lived in solitude until my mid 30s, when I gambled my inheritance on a €10,000 house in an abandoned Italian medieval quarter – a few short years later, I was awarded the keys to the city for having inspired a big new international community and the rejuvenation of the old town!

I am deeply sentient, and able to read collective energy and momentum – so have been involved in multifarious successful community transformation projects!

    Hello Clare. I live in Cape Town South Africa. Just saw your house hunt in House Hunters International! How brave of you! Googled you and voila!! Found you. Seems it has been enormously successful. Well done and truly pray that the recent earthquake in Italy did not affect you. Greetings from afar. Rod

      Hi Rod – many thanks for your lovely comment, and yes, after humble beginnings, things took off in Guardia – both for myself and the town – we even have a small South African contingency to our international community, now 🙂 Blessedly we were not affected by the recent earthquake ❤ but yes, very sad for Amatrice and the zone…

      Very good wishes, Clare


    • claregallowayartist says:

      Shawn, thank you so much for your beautiful words and encouragement! Yes, there has been significant seismic activity recently in Italy, but praise be, we are all safe here, with the restoration of the old town going on all around with great gusto 🙂 Loads of good wishes to you and your wife, and thank you again for your enthusiasm! Clare

    Hi Clare,
    I arrived in guardia a week ago Tuesday, my sister came here about a year ago thru a tour with Carlo Roberts
    She fell in love and convinced her husband and me to purchase a house.
    The sale finalized in march and this is the first visit here, I too am in love although a bit overwhelmed in searching online to find your book I was overjoyed. I now am on a quest to buy it, I have your address and hope I am able to find the art house and fingers crossed it will be open (I still don’t quite understand the hours)
    Here I feel it’s hit or miss at best. Anyway off on my search for your book. Ciao Gloria Rose

    Hello Clare,
    I’m an artist living in San Francisco CA
    I am thinking of MarieFoleo BSchool.
    Could you share with me how it helped you? I’m curious about how it works.
    Im a visual artist & vocalist & musican.
    Thank you very Kindly, Monica Loncola


    • claregallowayartist says:

      Hi Monica 🙂 It’s a fab course – very intensive, and a great means of reining in the artistic brain! I did it back in 2014, and it really helped me get from being-all-over-the-place, to honing my branding and purpose. I highly recommend it, if you’re willing to put in the hours and see it through 😀 Also, there are a ton of artistic people, masses of groups and meetups, rafts of resources and brains to pick on – many folks find that this is the most important aspect of the course for them.

      (I’m also running an art school to support career development and long term sustainability of practise – you might be interested in the latter terms which will be released from summer onwards, this year 🙂 It’s on http://www.thersoa.com)

      Really good wishes, and see you in B-School if you sign up! Clare
