Although originally trained in Advertising, with a BA in the subject from Brunel University, Clare felt she was much better suited to design and changed career direction.
Her first ‘glitter glassware’, a gift industry innovation, was made on her kitchen table, featuring heavily-glittered typography and motifs. Some years later, Clare sold her company and began the next chapter of her career, designing for greeting cards (still sparkling with glitter!).
Clare’s style is completely self-taught, developed working in the shed she shares with the dogs and cats in the bottom of the garden. Her work has been featured by many companies including Simon Elvin, Enesco, Nigel Quiney and Piccadilly Greetings.
Clare lives in the Oxfordshire countryside with her partner and children.. Clare is about to start her MA in Illustration and is hoping to progress in to children’s book illustration.
