about me

hello … my name is Claire and I am a Textile Designer based in the UK in Hertfordshire.

I have a passion for textile and pattern design and I’m crazy for all things fashion and interior design related. My designs are all about the delicate, handmade, playful, feminine, layered, quirky and textural. Inspired by nature and culture, I also research current trends from the catwalk and high street, and create trend boards to work from. ‘Playing’ with these ideas, I make them my own, using water colour, pencil, screenprint, pen, photography and collage. These are then scanned in and worked into a collage layout using photoshop or illustrator.

I have studied Interior Spatial Design at Chelsea College of Art and Design and I have a BA First Class Hons Degree in Illustration from The University of Hertfordshire.

I’m currently on the lookout for the right agent to represent me, and at this stage in my design career, an internship would also be exciting. I’m motivated by the people working around me, and always welcome feedback. Not only does it ensure that my designs meet your needs, it also means that I’m always learning and developing.

I would also love to work with you on any freelance opportunities so please do get in touch and say hello!
