Clare O’Neill Artworks - Art - Gifts - Greeting Cards - Homewares


Hi there, I’m Clare O’Neill and I am a textile artist living on Ashdown Forest, East Sussex. With a background in studying textile design at art schools in London and Surrey, I create mixed media paintings that showcase my love of nature and wildlife. Each of my designs is photographed, digitised so that every paint stroke, texture and collage can be admired in the finished product.

I have developed a giftware range featuring eco friendly greeting cards, stationery and prints.

I take much of my inspiration from the natural surroundings of where I live, capturing the seasonal changes and gathering materials from walks on the forest with my daughter and trusty pug, Sniff.

I am a keen collector, and surround myself with an eclectic mix of items throughout my home. I take great pleasure in these items, which I source from near and far: anywhere from local boot fairs and yard sales to antique centres around the world.

Never one to follow the “less is more” approach, I find by decorating my home with objects I love allows me to further express my creative side, and this is also reflected in my work. Intricate layers of newspaper, collage and scripts are all elements I return to again and again.

My work has been described as tactile, organic and and expressive.
