My name is Claire and I am a Fiber Artist.
I have lived in England all my life and qualified in Fine Art at Winchester School of Art. Since I was very young I always enjoyed arts and crafts projects. Making something with your hands is a very relaxing and enjoyable past time for myself and many other creative people.
What does 'Fiber Artist' mean?
Fiber art refers to fine art whose material consists of natural or synthetic fiber and other components, such as fabric or yarn. It focuses on the materials and on the manual labour on the part of the artist as part of the works' significance, and prioritizes aesthetic value over utility.
This is the definitian from google but with my work I prefer aesthetic and utility.
I love my work to be both beautiful and useful at the same time.
A fashion piece or something unique to a household.
I hope you enjoy your visit.
