Claire Cartwright is a Bristol-based artist and designer who enjoys exploring the boundaries between art, design and the creation of functional pieces using cyanotype and screen-printing. She graduated in 2012 with a degree in Printed Textile Design from the University of Brighton and has been working with screen-printing and design for the last 9 years. She set up her studio in Bristol 3 years ago with a desire to make things with her hands and, simply, the urge to play and have fun with pattern.
A common theme in her work is the positive and negative elements and the interplay and development of these are they are explored using her two different studio processes, cyanotype and screen-printing. Claire has a cyclical approach to designing, whereby ‘design-waste’ from one process informs the creation of the next, and so on. She encourages commissions and collaborations within her work to introduce freshness with new perspectives and practices
