Clare Brownlow

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Clare Brownlow is a Scottish Borders-based artist who has developed a thriving business around her beautiful animal and game portraits, which are painted in an unusual and unique way, using a pheasant tail feather and coloured inks. Her household product lines and stationery featuring her lively and characterful subjects have taken off in a big way.

Clare draws inspiration for her work from the wildlife around their Borders home; from the bountiful game and fish in the surrounding rivers and hills, the bees and birds in her wild garden, and also from the plains of Africa where she has spent time. In creating her exquisite animal portraits, she has developed a unique style and execution. Using the pheasant tail feathers from local shoots as a quill, she draws and paints in coloured inks, expressing the character of the animals with an immediacy and vibrancy that has proved extremely popular with a wide clientele.

As well as limited editions and originals of her work, Clare sells beautifully produced, UK-sourced tableware and products via her website, including table mats and coasters, greetings cards and postcards and personalised stationery such as bespoke game cards and estate maps, which are tailored for the client. She also undertakes private commissions, from family pet portraits or a record of a day’s catch, to themed murals for a child’s bedroom.
