About

Pic for biog black & white.JPG

My name is Claire Leech and I live in Emsworth, Hampshire with my husband Graham and Nell the Border Terrier. I have always enjoyed painting, writing and making things but, during my working life, had to put hobbies to one side. It was only after my husband and I retired and moved to the South Coast, that I was able to do arty things again.

These creations are inspired by the things I love: the seaside, beaches, seahorses, fishes, owls, horses, ponies and unicorns (especially unicorns, because according to all the 4 year olds I've known, they're real!).

Family members who've had babies in the last few years prompted me to develop 'off the peg' and personalised gifts to celebrate a newborn. That led to me creating pictures and wall hangings for other special occasions, celebrations and commemorations, such as anniversaries, milestone birthdays and weddings.

For unframed pictures, I use either stretched canvas or a variety of wood as backgrounds - eg beech, birch, pine and Empress wood. The figures and characters are made either of polymer clay, wood or mdf then hand-painted in acrylic.

I am happy to take commissions; message me with your ideas and we can work together to create something special. Please get in touch using the contact form below.
