Clare has been experimenting with embroidery and illustration, creating a crossover between the two for many years. In 2004 when her youngest son started school she decided to create a business from this love of art and "Ginger Arts" was born.
Clare creates art to make you smile, turning sketches into personalities and keepsakes through embroidery and illustration- or a combination of the two. She is inspired by the countryside and wildlife around her home in Dent, and the often quirky nature of the Dales. Each of her pictures has a story to tell, inviting us to interpret what we see through our own personal journey.
