Hi and welcome! I'm Claire, as you may have guessed!
"Claire Danielle Art" was born during lockdown 1 - i finally had the time and opportunity to return to my love of conventional art and was overwhelmed and hugely flattered with the amazing reaction i received. so here's my story ... so far!
For the past 15 years I have been running a professional face and body painting company called Fascinating Faces. I had the joy of working with some amazing companies - hotels, golf clubs, restaurants, pubs, town centre teams, retailers as well as all our private parties and individual make up transformations.
It was a delight to create so many magical mirror moments for thousands of children and adults over the years. Obviously, everything changed for us at the beginning of the Covid pandemic and my face paints were banished "Harry Potter" style to the cupboard under the stairs!
However, every cloud has it's own silver lining and with full lockdown also closing my other business as a childminder, I found myself blessed with endless time to return to my love of painting and creating on paper and canvas.
Initially it was hours of self-absorbed, wonderful, glorious rediscovery. Gradually my own style started to return and I received some amazing support and encouragement and decided to take a deep breath and start selling my work.

I hope you enjoy exploring my work and don't hesitate to get in touch regarding individual commissions.
