Claire A Baker is a Textile & Surface Designer specialising in embroidery and also a Maker creating stationery items and accessories for fashion and the home. She produces pieces of a high quality that are contemporary, innovative, ambient and visually beautiful. Claire’s initial research and inspiration comes through in every piece, evoking a somewhat emotional response and the desire to touch.
Her signature style is expressed essentially through the sensitive use of soft, muted, tonal colours and a textural, creative interpretation of embroidery and embellishment techniques.
