Clare's lino cut prints show the strength and quality of the cut line. She graduated in theatre design from Central St Martin's and ever since has been working as an illustrator . She is easily diverted from her lino cutting by the distractions of the garden outside the workroom window in south west Scotland. Despite this she's managed to illustrate the 40 covers of the Penguin Shakespeare as well as the latest edition of the entire Harry Potter canon.
