Clare's Creations was established in 2000 by Clare and is now an Art and Framing Business run by Clare and her husband Tim.
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, paper-making and sugar craft, 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 sell Clare's art. 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 and prints at craft shows and national garden shows such as Harrogate Flower Show, Malvern Flower Show and Tatton Park Flower Show. She held an exhibition in 2003 with a fellow artist which was very successful and in 2007 she had a solo exhibition in Wetherby Town Hall.
Clare describes herself as a mixed media artist. She is a member of Walton Group of Artists, who have an annual exhibition in Walton, where Clare was voted 'best in show' in 2007 and 2013. Primarily her work is inspired by strong colours and nature, using inks and acrylics with texture. In 2014 she helped set up Artists Around Wetherby Open Studios,which is now an annual event. see Artists Around Wetherby for more information.
The product range now consists of cards, prints, coasters and of course original works. In 2008 Clare was successful in agreeing a licensing agreement for eight Christmas cards. She is happy to undertake commissions.
Tim provides a bespoke picture framing service. Without Tim's help and patience she would not be able to continue to pursue her dream.
