BLUE PRINT 2018 - claire picard

With a background in Fashion and Textiles, Claire Picard’s designs and illustrations are inspired by her love for flowers, the garden, birds and animals. Having worked as a lingerie/embroidery designer, fashion illustrator, and as a print artist, her illustrations are highly decorative, very feminine and  her characters have a whimsical, hand-crafted feel. Claire combines paper-cutting techniques, with ink or paint to create trend-forward collections and has become known for her novel colour combinations. Claire has worked internationally in the greetings card, stationery and home d├ęcor markets, and she also teaches illustration techniques online.  Now based in the south of England, she works out of her Hampshire based studio, and is excited to exhibit her portfolio of work independently at Blue Print for the first time in May 2018, taking part in show 2 (May 20th-22nd), Booth 37 on the Studio Floor.
