Hi! I'm Claire Spiller, a freelance illustrator & storyteller based in Bristol, UK.
I love animals, wild places, plants, handmade things, & creating characters and stories.
My work often blends nature, fantasy and mythology, with themes of environmental awareness and connection between people and nature.
I sell prints and original artworks, and self-publish my own comics and zines.
I am a BA Hons. graduate of University of Wales, Newport where I studied Animation, and was nominated for 'Best Sound' and 'Best Film' for my short 'Catharsis'.
I am also 1/5th of the collective Wine & Zine!
I am available for commission and freelance contracts.
Favourite Animals: Vultures (particularly bearded vulture), cetaceans, pigeons, cattle, axolotls and chickens
Favourite Plants: Succulents, pitchers, wisteria and ferns
