Hi, I’m Claire the artist behind Happy Art.
Happiness is close to my heart and happy art came about from the love of making art that made me feel happy. I also quickly realised that my happy art also made others feel happy too.
I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever call myself an artist but here I am doing just that! I have been on this journey for a long time and it has taken many twists and turns for me to get to where I am today.
As a child I loved colouring in, and art was my favourite subject at school. I would often enter colouring in competitions, and I would spend ages on creating colourful title pages for all of my school books. My art was always very organised and detailed. Everything had to be coloured in meticulously and I loved bold bright colours with clean lines.
I have a strong thinking preference for organisation and detail. I process information methodically and I like everything just so. I’m also very interpersonal, warm, and friendly. When I look at the art I create, these preferences are reflected in every piece. My designs are very detailed, with clean cut lines and block colours revealing my preference for structure and organisation. The acrylics I use are bold and bright, depicting an air of vibrancy and friendliness inviting people to smile and talk about them.
Most of my art is dot art because I love how precise each dot is. I can place each dot exactly where I want it and the colour comes out bold and even. My work colleagues have a giggle at me saying they have never seen such creative organised artist!
