I love to paint using water colour pencils and acrylic paint, and always aim to create the most vivid, captivating pieces that I can possibly do. My work focusses in traditional subjects, but I inject passion and vibrancy to create a modern twist.
I'm proud to sponsor all the Femme Fatales shooting events.
Up until last year, when I was married to my beloved, my business was known as Clare Shaw Fine Art and Design. I am a very old fashioned girl, and it felt wrong to carry on with my maiden name, so I have rebranded to Clare Haggas . The transition has been pretty seamless and organic so far, and by the time the new Autumn Collection has arrived all of my marketing, bespoke packaging, certificates and original artwork will be under the new banner.
With regards to my work, people always question how I get such energy in my paintings with just pencils but I believe this is down to the sheer passion and love that I have for my job. I live in rural Lincolnshire and the beauty that surrounds me is simply inspirational, it’s hard not to get excited each and every day when I step out into the glorious British countryside right on my doorstep.
I am an international Sporting artist who specialises in creating large dynamic and powerful paintings of a variety of British Wildlife. My particular passion is British birds and I have this unique ability to capture their personality and character as well injecting movement and passion. Over recent years I have been a fresh face on the countryside scene and my work is hung in a plethora of shoot rooms, country houses, offices, and hotels around the World.
My work is incredibly vibrant and after a light bulb moment, I decided to create a collection of Pure silk scarves to compliment my original artwork on a fashion accessory. All of my scarves are exclusively Made in England, are pure twill silk and have hand rolled edging. My bespoke packaging is stunning and the whole feel of the product is luxurious and timeless. Each design is available in an exquisite range of jewel like colours and every day I am designing, researching and developing new and exciting ideas to capture on the silk.
Its not only ladies who have been inspired by my collection, after just a few months I decided to offer gentlemen the chance to accessorise their outfits with their own range of Finest silk ties and complimenting pocket squares. My recent collections have been a phenomenal success, which inspires, and drives me to create more luxury scarves, accessories and gifts, as well as painting bigger, brighter and more stunning pieces of art.
I couldn't get by without them!
Will is my beloved.... he is so patient and supportive in everything I do and has especially encouraged and given me confidence around my career. He is always coming up with fresh ideas and suggesting new areas for me to pursue in order to become more established. We both love fishing and shooting which is where we unwind, laugh, have great banter and be with close friends as often as we can ... in a nutshell ...he's my soul mate
Daisy is not only my daughter but also my best friend. She's honest, enthusiastic and just a joy to be around. Daisy is so proud of my work and will often tell her friends all about a new piece I'm doing. She also tells me when I'm going wrong or if the painting is "rubbish"! Daisy inspires me, motivates me and keeps me sane. She's a real country girl, happiest in her wellies, walking the dogs, playing with the chickens and most recently waist high in the river catching salmon. That's how children should be
Winnie is our middle dog... so big, soft, cuddly she is just a great big bear. Loves to go shooting although not the best in the field but she has a very very good time. Swimming is her passion, as is sitting with me all day while I paint
Florence is the newest addition to the team. Still a pup and learning the ropes but possibly the most adorable Labrador I've ever met. So naughty, so funny and ever so sweet.
Yes ... noodle is our smallest and oldest member of the pack . She is also in charge which for such a little dog is hilarious. Both labradors are scared of her. Noodle is a rescue dog and we have had her since a pup. People always ask what breed she is and I say " a Noodle" she's just a Noodle !!
