Her distinctive work has an illustrative quality with its inspiration rooted in the everyday. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art having specialised in Textiles. Since then she has worked freelance trading as Incahoots.
Rather than being material or technique specific, she utilises an inventive broad approach to the drawn mark. Drawing is the integral component, whether made through traditional drawing materials, wire, scraper board or the use of stitch and fabric.
Funding from the Scottish Arts Council has enabled Claire to develop her practice integrating traditional and new technologies. Particularly the use of digital print alongside screen-print and stitch, working in an increased scale in 2 and 3 dimensions suitable for different environments.
Claire is influenced by many things including; the connections and stories within our everyday~ 'the extraordinary in the ordinary'; the clients brief; the world around her.
