About Claire Mort Artist

Claire Mort Artist

Original Art, Prints and Cards

I work in many different types of media, hand embroidery, painting, printmaking, photography and collage.

I want to make art that I love and I want to share it with you. I want people to come to my little shop and think that was exactly what I was looking for and that will cheer up my house and me every time I look at it. I want my customers to know what they are buying is made with love, is fabulous quality with customer service that comes from the heart. I want to make beautiful things, made with love and care to bring joy, comfort and happiness.

I make original pieces of art and they are made with joy and love, these are then made into prints and cards. It is possible to buy the originals of these works, please message me for more info. The work I make has an investment of myself in it and is made from the heart.

When I make my work, it doesn't feel like work. It feels like something I simply must do. I love the process and the stillness it brings to my heart and soul.

I hope my little shop brings you as much joy as it has brought me creating it.
My work is about the world around me and my experiences thus far. From social media and the changes in the world and people since I was little, to the #metoo movement, 100 years of suffrage, advertising, typography and everything in between.

My work although mainly female is not a feminist statement necessarily, as even though I have read and read and read... I am still not really sure I or anyone else really knows what that is. For me I just want to be treated fairly and with respect and I guess that's what most of us want really no matter what gender we are. However I am female, and how I experience the world influences my work. I am a member of SEW, Society For Embroidered Work. The aim of S.E.W is to promote and support artists who have an element of stitching in their artworks, hand or machine and traditional or contemporary forms of embroidery. I am also a member of the Embroiderers Guild, and last but by no means least I am a member of Artwey, an amazing local arts society who exhibit and promote local artists in Dorset.

Before qualifying as a graphic designer back in 2001, I had studied fine art, printmaking and textiles, as well as photography. I became a mum in 2001 and worked freelance, dedicating my time to be the best mum I could be to my amazing son, working freelance and setting up exhibitions. Lately, I have ceased doing commercial work as it no longer made me happy, in fact I am not sure it ever did. I am now pursuing my own projects and this brings me great joy indeed. I live in the beautiful county of Dorset in the UK and it really is the most amazing place, with beaches everywhere, woods, fields and nature. A real blessing. My primary fields of work are textiles, paint, printmaking and photography; with a particular passion for film photography.
