“I have had the pleasure of working with Clare over the course of a number of years. In 2012 we created several new ceramics designs which we launched in the middle of that year and have been hugely successful.

Clare has quite a unique design style that is immediately recognisable as being of extraordinary detail and quality, whilst bringing a touch of humour which all can recognise.

She also has a real feel for what is commercial, and is prepared to change and adapt her work countless times until we are confident that the design is as good as possible.

We are currently working on a number of new designs for 2014 and look forward to working with Clare for many years to come.”

“I had admired Clare’s unique wit and humour for many years from afar, be it her work for the Tatler (I didn’t subscribe but worked at Conde Nast at the time so got a free copy) or Nonsense Books by Michael Rosen that my kids loved as much as me. Now as creative director of GH I get the chance to commission her every month which is a joy (and very funny too).”

Heather Clark

“Clare always comes up trumps with any project she is tasked with, always hits the button creatively and is a pleasure to deal with. She’s always happy to help with a last-minute crisis and is calm and unfailingly great fun!”

Joe Whitlock Blundell

“Working with Clare is invariably a joy and delight. Though her style is most individual – and inimitable – she is never predictable, and always comes up with ideas which are better than one had dreamt of oneself. Most of all, she makes me laugh, for which I am most thankful!”

Sue Redmond

“Clare is a patron of Full of Life, and has over the past eleven years supported us not only from her heart but from the tips of her pens and brushes.

Clare has helped us get our message across by illustrating our logo, training booklets, brochures, leaflets, flyers and products that help us inform and empower some of the most isolated and vulnerable families in a fun but powerful way. Parents tell us that even when they are out of date, they leave our flyers on their fridge doors because they make them smile!

Clare is an absolute joy to work with and we love and truly appreciate everything she does for us.”
