ARTIST STATEMENT

  • Clare lives in Devon with her husband and two children. She teaches in a primary school and has over ten years experience in Early Years and Key Stage One. In 2014 she became a Specialist Leader of Education and supports local schools to achieve high standards in phonics, primary languages and the Early Years Foundation Stage. Her colleagues at school say she never thinks small and when Clare says ‘I’ve got a good idea!’ …they usually run and hide! In 2013, Clare won The Margaret Carey Scholarship for Picture Book Writers. She was also awarded Silver Medal in the Greenhouse Funny Prize in 2014 for her picture book, Aerodynamics of Biscuits, which is due to be published by Maverick Arts Publishing September 2015. Clare is represented by Alice Williams of David Higham Associates.
