Claire is an illustrator/designer with a background in the greetings card industry. She has designed for Asda, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Clinton’s, Moonpig and UK Greetings to name a few! She enjoys working in many different styles and themes from character illustration to hand lettering and working with traditional mediums. Claire is also one of those strange people that genuinely loves a challenge, especially if it involves paper engineering!
She’s a very proud Yorkshire lass - she lives and works in Yorkshire and even studied there many moons ago, qualifying with a BA Hons in Graphic Design from Leeds College of Art (now Leeds Arts University) in 2010. Claire feels incredibly lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world where inspiration is literally everywhere.
Being completely animal/nature obsessed, four-legged friends feature heavily in her work. She loves watching the birds, otters and other wildlife from her home, but can also often be found at the zoo, harassing other people’s pets or parked in front of a David Attenborough documentary!
Claire spends most of her time doodling, but when she’s not drawing she enjoys cooking (mainly because she enjoys eating - a lot!), spending time out in the countryside (stopping to pet ALL the dogs), visiting restaurants and galleries, and bothering her family and friends.
