Our Story

   Claire Edwards is a multi-award winning mixed media hand embroidery artist and educator who, despite facing chronic illnesses and the responsibilities of being a caregiver, refuses to let adversity define her life. Instead, she chooses to embrace the beauty of the world and channel that inspiration into the art of embroidery.

Living and travelling full time in her motorhome called Kiril, she embraces an unconventional lifestyle that embodies her creative spirit and resilience. Her hand embroidery work goes beyond the art of stitching delicate threads onto fabric, it reflects her personal journey and serves as a testament to her strength and perseverance in the face of adversity. Despite life's challenges, she continues to push forward, transforming obstacles into opportunities to create something beautiful. Her work inspires us to see the world with new eyes, to find beauty in unexpected places, and to embrace our own journeys with courage and creativity.

The beauty of the places that she visits is a source of inspiration for her embroidery work. From the rugged coastlines to the serene forests, each landscape offers a unique perspective that can be captured in her designs. Her travels allow her to gather natural materials to incorporate into her work, such as shells and drift wood.  These organic elements bring an added depth and texture to her embroidery, connecting her work to the natural world around her.

Filming her travels, she hopes to inspire others to embrace their own sense of adventure and creativity, and to see the world in a new light. Her films showcase the rich diversity of the world and the connections that exist between all of us.
