About Claire

I have enjoyed a career as an illustrator of children’s books and stationery working from home in a small market town in Essex where I live with my two sons and two cats.
I have run the Sherbet Box as a monthly stationery subscription box for several years, it is now becoming a quarterly box to fit around other work commitments - I just love making new stationery!
I went to a ‘Knitting and Stitching’ show at the Alexandra Palace in London in 2019 with a friend and stumbled across a stall selling little needle felting kits and bought a cat one on a whim.

I LOVED this craft straight away and then got completely obsessed during the long hours at home in covid lockdowns.

Opening the craft cabin to teach needle felting in 2023 was a brilliant new venture for me, ending the year with being commissioned by Burberry to work with them to produce a TikTok advert for them!

Away from my desk you can find me pottering in my garden, off on long countryside rambles with friends or cheering on Arsenal at the Emirates :)
