About Claire Louise

Greetings Cards, Prints and Gifts...

Ever since I was a little girl I spent my holidays sitting at the kitchen table immersed in arts and crafts.

I carried on my passion throughout school, college and university. Graduating with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Fashion Design in 2007, I was short-listed for the SDC Textiles & Colour Award at Graduate Fashion Week.

Since graduating I specialised in artistic textiles creating unusual hand painted silk products using a process of indirect printing. The silk scarves are individual in style and can be worn as a fashion accessory or framed as a timeless piece of art. The silk scarves were short-listed for London Fashion Week 2007.

My illustrative designs have been put onto ranges of greetings cards and open edition prints, using a mixed media of water-colour, fabrics and machine embroidery.

A lot of time is spent on creating a design that is unique for everyone; the designs have created interest from many companies and have since been licensed onto other products including My Personalised Wooden Gifts and Artko Ltd. Claire Louise cards have been sold in various shops, department stores (John Lewis, Fenwick, Hoopers & Elphicks) garden centres,Wildlife & Wetland Centres, museums, zoo's etc throughout the UK as well as being exported worldwide.

Claire reached the finals for a Henries Award in 2013 in The Best Young Designer or Artist category.
