About

Posted on by Claire

<p style="text-align: Cheap Jordans center”>“My painting and design is a celebration of colour and pattern. I love ornament and design in both natural and man made objects. With a background in printed textiles I find myself most often drawn to flat, graphic pattern as a backdrop for flowers and domestic ceramics.

I love painted lines, the texture of paint on watercolour paper and the handmade feel of painted designs.”
