Clare is a cartoonist, illustrator, automata maker, animator, ceramicist, plumber, harmonica player, and social worker…

Drawing cartoons for 40 years, she has scribbled on the insides of hundreds of empty cereal packets, disused crumpled envelopes, concrete pavements and in the condensation of large glass windows. As yet, she hasn’t had volumes of work published, since sending windowpanes and paving slabs in the post to art editors has been a shattering and unsuccessful enterprise. Armed now with realms of photocopy paper, a Wacom tablet and computer, Clare plans to take a more traditional route into getting her cartoons ‘out there’ this year.

Clare has exhibited in major shows in the UK and is a member of The British Toymaker’s Guild. Her automata has  been described as 3D cartooning with a bit of mechanics thrown in. She is a QEST Alumni Scholar for her automata, and has enjoyed watching Prince Charles play with her work – more of which can be seen here.

  1. Lovely stuff Clare. Enjoyed looking at your automata in action on YouTube.

  2. I agree, this enchanting talent is a great addition to our PCO.
