Claire Dowdeswell's Profile

About

Hello and welcome to my shop.
My name is Claire, I'm 43 years old, married to 'Melly the Mod' and we have a 4 year old son called Declan.
I've always had a luv for art from an early age, went to college and studied art, then took a different direction in life, but turned 40 and thought 'I have to follow my dreams and ambitions'!, so really I've done full circle and ended back to my passion - ART!
So what are my dreams, what is my ambition, well my dream is to make a living from my art and my ambition is to have an exhibition of my work, and it's this that keeps my going day to day.
I luv pattern and colour and feel I'm a very visual person. I luv going to the seaside, especially Brighton, Cornwall and the Isle Of Wight.

I luv photography and Lambretta's and being a modette, VW beetles, campervan's and owls. Anything inspires me depends on the day and where I am, but I do like artists like Albert Irvin and Damien Hurst. I like abstract art but also things in regimented lines and symetrical patterns. I create patterns, take photos of Lambretta's, beetles, cars etc and give them a twist of colour and texture and create art and will add these to my shop, but for now I'm just concentrating on my small pockets of art, using anything from paper bunnies, butterflies, to teddy bears and buttons.

So enjoy looking and don't forget to come back and visit .
