Claire studied art and design at college and has always loved to sketch and draw.
She has developed her love of drawing and combined it with her extensive knowledge of gilding to create works of art using the ancient and beautiful technique of Verre Églomisé.
Pronounced Verr Egg-loam-eezay, it is a term used to describe the application of gold leaf on glass into which designs are etched. It is believed to date back to the pre-Roman era. However, an 18th century French decorator Jean-Baptiste Glomy (1711–1786) was responsible for its revival and his name became synonymous with the decorative procedure - Églomisé.
Her work is for sale and always on display in her studio in Gloucestershire and various art society exhibitions throughout the year in the UK and USA.
Claire wears her locket at HRH The Prince of Wales 70th Birthday garden party held in May.
