“Family life and coastal living fuel my creative output” says Claire. “I love seaside postcards, bold colours, and whimsical humour, and often find the seeds for new ideas come from conversations with friends and family, or from observing interactions between people.”
“The responsive nature of my business means I can take inspiration from trends and create products that really resonate with my customers.”

Our collection is ready for you to peruse at your leisure, we have pages full of products we love and know you will too! Our popular range of Colouring Posters includes the best selling Giant Christmas Tree Poster.
