Surtex has opened it’s doors today! Cutlery Drawer was one of my first designs and remains an olde favourite.


I spend a lot of time in the kitchen so I had a vested interest in making it more picturesque!


These designs came about after I found a box of vintage cutlery at a car boot sale.


All the designs are available for purchase or licence at Advocate Art on stand 416.


Christmas has come early today!


I named this Christmas wrapping design: Bouncing Bauble’s. It makes me smile.


It always foxes me that you have to think of Christmas designs during Spring in production terms. So I worked hard in Dec and Jan while I was still in the festive groove.



I love these Christmas roses, they came out just right and I like the colour palette too – so I’m hoping (fingers crossed) that a buyer will too.


All designs are available for license or sale through Advocate Art on stand 416 at Surtex.


Claire_Leggett_Collaged Flower Design Template Sunday is the first day of the Surtex show in New York.


Surtex is the biggest exhibition linking designers and manufacturers together to buy or license designs.


I so wish I was actually there but the next best thing is knowing that my agents Advocate Art are –  on stand 416.


And one my designs that are in the portfolio is Collaged Flower.

I’ve been a bit shy about sharing some really good news here. Back in December I submitted my work to an artists agency called Advocate Art and was lucky enough to be signed on with them. That means that they market the images that I give them for licensing opportunities for card, wall-art, stationery etc and offer me other commission opportunities. This past week I have worked on some ideas that Next are commissioning for their interior products.

They are based down in Surrey where I met Natasha who is my contact within the firm. They represent at a lot of the major trade fairs too such as Surtex and Paperworld. I went to visit when they had a stand at the NEC in Birmingham for Spring Fair this year, where they showcased all their artists in the huge Greetings Card hall ( a hall full of companies devoted to all things greeting card related.)

 I’m hoping that it will prove to be a good compliment to my painting work and give me a chance to see some of my pattern designs out in the world. Fingers crossed!
