Claire Louise is an artist and designer from Durham in the North East.
As a child, Claire was immersed in arts and crafts and so began her creative journey. Her creativity led her to take a degree in fashion and she graduated in 2007 with 1st Class honours.
In the same year, she was short-listed for the SDC (Society of Dyers and Colourists) Textile & Colour Award at Graduate Fashion Week and her hand-painted silk scarves were short-listed for London Fashion Week.
Working with mixed mediums of water-colours, fabrics and machine embroidery, Claire’s designs have merged with the world of greetings cards, homeware and personal beauty care.
And, with stockists such as John Lewis, Fenwick, Hoopers and large independent retailer’s such as Blackwells, Kew Gardens, Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and Chester Zoo, Claire is quickly becoming popular in the industry. Claire was a Henries finalist in 2013 for Most Young Promising Designer and in 2022 for Best Art Range. Claire is also working with some major online retailers such as Wayfair and Amazon, and supplies her work to a number of large Charities such as CLIC- Sargent, Daisychain & Weldmar Hospice just to name a few.
Claire is also fortunate to work with different creative industries. Her range of exclusive hairbrushes are sold in prestigious Ozzie Rizzo Salons in Mayfair and Richmond and her artworks are featured in TV shows and a blockbuster movie due for release in Autumn 2017.
Her work is available for licensing and is already seen on a range of ceramics, candles, apparel, tech and personalised gifts.
Her creative journey continues in her studio in Durham…
