Claire Simpson

Claire lives and works in Derbyshire with her mischievous chocolate labrador Archie. 

Having graduated from university with a degree in Textile Design, she went on, along with many graduates, to do a list of completely unrelated jobs. As months went by she began to wonder whether she could still 'do' art, and whilst embarking on a working holiday to New Zealand, she gingerly packed a sketchbook in her suitcase, which thankfully revived her love of drawing.

Being a huge animal lover, she came back with the idea of creating pet portraits and wildlife art, and bought a tin of expensive coloured pencils to confirm this.
