claire paisley
My name is Claire Paisley, I am an illustrator and maker, living and working in St Leonards-on-sea.

I started selling hand made textiles, while studying at Brighton college and exhibited my work with The Sussex Guild, as well as stocking several galleries and shops nationwide. Over the following eleven years I continued to make and draw, whilst bringing up my four children, though stopped showing my work on a regular basis. 

I am currently concentrating more on illustration than making, but my textiles background and my interest in surface pattern strongly inform my work.
