Clare Pattinson

Artist

Character designs, cartoons, chirpy animations, cards, caricatures in clay, childrens' book illustration, corporate identities. Bespoke cartoon illustration for private and corporate customers. Automata and mechanical creations. Commissions welcome, and all budgets will be catered for.

Please contact me for further details or to discuss a project or idea. I will work through your brief with you until you are happy with the outcome.

To see the automata moving, I've posted short films of them working on Facebook: Turner Handel Traditional Toys. Go to the video section.

Having spent years working with homeless people, in tandem with tirelessly illustrating through the twilight hours, I am now concentrating more fully on cartooning, illustration, ceramics and making automata from scrap and found materials. On occasions, amid my time working with society's broken and struggling members, I have managed to maintain my morale and enthusiasm by taking myself away to study things of a more light hearted nature.

I have a B.A in animation and diplomas in ceramics , cartooning and illustration. I look forward to a future with a pen or carving tool in my hand.
