Claire Johns Art


Currently there are 2 sides to my art practice – illustration and surface pattern design.

The illustration side started several years ago when I was experiencing a transformative change in my life. No longer fulfilled in my career, I was searching for a new way forward. I started sketching in the early mornings to see what would happen. To my surprise, silly joyful characters would appear on the page as I sketched. I fell in love with them and wondered if they would have the same effect on others. These vignettes are short story illustrations meant to capture relatable, usually lighthearted, winks of time in the character’s life. Their purpose - to brighten a day. Other illustrations are quick studies to inspire, encourage. 

 My surface pattern design practice is relatively new to me and I am hooked by the process. Watching my small motifs come together to produce amazing repeating patterns and putting those patterns to work on so many types of products thrills me, as does the idea of growing this rewarding art form.
