I am Claire Halson and I live with my husband Mark, and our four daughters - Emily (15), Alice (8), Grace (4) and Lily (2).
I’ve always been artistic and worked as a freelance Artist before joining the world of ‘proper’ work! From as young as I can remember, I have been painting, drawing and creating my own items. The clouds came about when I was designing one of my girls’ bedrooms and wanted a cloud and raindrop theme. I couldn’t find anything that I liked and so I made a few clouds and a mobile, and Claireoncloud9 was born!
I work from my little studio in my home in Oxfordshire. Every design under the Claireoncloud9 label is designed by me, from the first sketch to the last stitch!
All of my inspiration comes from my children, and the great British weather! I constantly have new ideas buzzing around in my head! I get excited like a child when a new idea becomes an object. I like my products to bring a smile to peoples faces, and add a touch of dreaminess to their homes.
My plan for the future is for Claireoncloud9 to grow and become a well known label.
Thank you Claire for your inspiring story!
