Clare lives in Wetherby. Clare has always been interested in art and all things creative, having tried her hand at a number of crafts, including painting, sewing, knitting, patchwork, papermaking and sugarcraft, but has throughout her life always wanted to return to painting. In 2000 an opportunity arose when her twin sister was looking to expand her own photography business and suggested that she could perhaps sell Clare's work. Clare enrolled on a couple of one day silk painting courses and was captivated by the way paint moves on silk and as most silk painters will report was hooked. In December 2000 she started her own business Clare's Creations selling her original paintings, cards, prints and posters at Craft Shows but more recently at national garden shows such as Harrogate Flower Show, Malvern Flower Show and Tatton Park . She held an exhibition in 2003 with a fellow artist which was very successful and her first solo exhibition in 2007. Primarily her work is inspired by strong colours and flowers. In 2008 she was commissioned to produce a large piece of work for "Fennel" restaurant in Wetherby and she has subsequently been commissioned to do some further work. She also produces novelty cards and prints from her original watercolours. Clare is self publishing and her products include originals, prints, cards, posters, mugs, canvases, framed work and coasters. A limited number of images are on the SAA website please visit my own website for the full range of products. Prices start at £1 for cards with prints from £3 to £15. www.clarescreations.co.uk
I exhibit at number of different locations, mainly flower shows and Craft Shows. Please see events page for full listing. This programme of events is not complete and will be updated again in March.
Clare was voted best in show in the Walton Group of Artists Annual exhibition in 2007 and again in 2011
