Claire is a British born artist working in the medium of layered, stitched textiles. She exhibits her work internationally and numerous pieces of her work are held in private and corporate collections.
Throughout her life Claire has been a professional teacher, working with young children, teens and adults and is a strong believer in the power of sharing knowledge with others. She has lived and worked in many different countries and whilst in South Africa volunteered at a local library teaching literacy, numeracy and basic patchwork and quilting skills to disadvantaged women and refugees.
