Clare Youngs trained as a graphic designer who worked in manufacturing, mainly in packaging design. Since childhood has enjoyed making beautiful handcrafted objects working with paper and fabric. She is also a craft author whose books are available in craft and book stores. The artist moved from London and now lives and works in Broadstairs, on the beautiful coast of Kent. On Fishink blog she says this about herself:
“When I can, I enjoy escaping to my studio to work on one off pieces. I have collected ephemera since I was a child and utilize vintage labels and paper in my pieces. When working with fabric I like to recycle and love to give a new lease of life to something old.”
