Clare is a surface pattern designer and printmaker based in the UK who delivers creative workshops from her home studio in Cheshire. Clare has over 15 years of teaching experience in the FE sector and has recently made the leap to create her own home wear range and deliver workshops full time.

Being inspired by nature means Clare can’t resist collecting plants and beach combing while on family walks with Bobby, the Bichon Frise, who is rather famous with the locals and known as ‘no-eye Bob’ (yes, he has no eyes!).

Clare has a passion for creating and printing designs beginning with one-off gelli plate prints, which are then layered using digital techniques to form final designs.
