Creative Quarters... Claire Wilson

The next designer to be featured in Creative Quarters is Claire Wilson.

Claire is a freelance illustrator and surface pattern designer, working from a small studio in her countryside home in Northamptonshire. 
She enjoys creating fun, colourful and illustrative designs to make people smile and absolutely loves what she does.

After studying Design Crafts at De Montfort University in Leicester, Claire graduated in 2007 and began her creative career as a homeware product designer for Next. 
She worked on a wide variety of projects including 3D design and surface pattern. 
In 2012, Claire decided to set up her own design business, focusing on surface pattern design and illustration, and has since worked as a freelance designer for a number of companies, with her designs being used across a wide variety of products, including nursery and children’s bedding, home textiles, dinnerware, stationery and gifting as well as nightwear apparel.

She finds inspiration everywhere, from simple everyday household objects to all things bright and beautiful outside. 
Naturally drawn to illustrative styles and bright colours, she enjoys creating designs with lots of lovely little details. 
She loves to draw and often starts the process by hand drawing motifs or lettering, working in pen and pencil before scanning them into the computer and adding colour digitally.

After completing all four modules of the acclaimed “Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design” e-course, Claire decided that she wanted to develop her design portfolio and began producing prints and patterns for licensing opportunities. 
She recently launched a brand new website which features her own range of art prints, bespoke gifts and greeting cards, as well as showcasing some of her latest print and pattern designs which are available for licensing. 
Claire's also very happy to collaborate on commissioned work and freelance projects, so please feel free to visit her website or find her on Instagram here.

Claire has thrown in an extra little freebie for readers of loveprintstudio.
