Clare 'Choc' Howell
Clare is a mixed media artist working in 2D and 3D, and founder of Creative Exchange Cardigan. She creates her vibrant, colourful pieces from Foxgloves ART Studio, Eglwyswrw, Pembrokeshire. The studio is open to the
public and Clare regularly runs workshops in mixed-media painting, collage, decoupage, and furniture upcycling.
With vivid imagination, Clare creates magical pieces characterised by a strong use of colour (often florescent).
She incorporates collage nd textural mediums and there is usually a twist, or a tiny detail somewhere in her work which will make you smile. In fact, Clare's French Bulldog, Sybil (a discerning art critic) makes an appearance
in many of her paintings, as do locals areas of natural beauty, including her favourite Ceibwr Bay and the
Preseli National Park. Clare's quirky decorated furniture is an extension of her creativity into 3D. She transforms
unloved pieces into mini art installations using an electic mix of painting, collage, and decoupage techniques.
If you would like Clare to create something original just for you (for a particular place in your home, as a celebration,
or as a gift) please ask. She really loves doing commissions and creating special, unique pieces of art
