Clare Lake graduated from the Winchester School of Art with a BA. Hon's. degree in textile design. Since then she has been a freelance textile designer working for many prestigious companies designing predominantly floral themes for fabrics, coordinates, bed linen, wall coverings and china. Blendworth, Jane Churchill, Sanderson, John Lewis and Royal Doulton, have been some of her many clients. She is also a member of the Society of Floral Painters (SFP) and has exhibited at various venues.
Since moving to Cornwall she has concentrated on floral paintings, house and garden landscapes and will work on commissions of your favourite plants, gardens or home. Clare will travel in the Devon and Cornwall areas but if you live further a-field she can work from photographs of your house or garden, or simply name your favourite plants and flowers and a rough draught can be sent to you for your approval before committing to paint.
Clare Lake is a member of the Society of Floral Painters and has been commissioned to undertake numerous projects. Her paintings have been exhibited in various venues and she has been commissioned by the Devon Wildlife Trust and local magazines. She now lives in Cornwall and paints from her studio and is developing her own range of products including cards and prints.
