Claire Tomara

Lighting Designer

Scotland Office

Claire joined KSLD in 2017, after graduating from the Lighting Design Masters programme at Edinburgh Napier University. She also has a professional degree in architecture and work experience in Greece and India. While studying, Claire was involved in the stage lighting design of several amateur theatrical productions. 

What attracts her to lighting is the way it transforms the perception of space. She is particularly interested in the lighting of the urban realm and the way it changes people’s experience of the night in cities. In 2019, Claire and Natalie Redford were selected workshop leaders at Lights in Alingsås in Sweden.

When not in the office, Claire puts on her dancing shoes and seeks the nearest dance floor! When she doesn’t feel like going out, she enjoys reading and planning her next trip.
