Hi, I’m Claire, the artist and designer behind Schmooks.
Schmooks started in the way all good fairytales do… with a little bit of magic, a sprinkle of fairydust, and a dash of serendipity.
As I was preparing to welcome my first child, I decided to kiss goodbye the corporate world of graphic design and spend my days lost in a world of dreamy children’s’ illustrations. What started out as a few sales on Etsy quickly grew into something beyond my wildest dreams.
I hope to help adults remember the joy of childhood and give them a way to create this same joy in their child’s bedroom. My artworks are designed to nurture children’s imaginations and encourage them to create their own magical worlds full of enchantment and wonder.
Back in the real world, I am living my happily ever after in Canberra, Australia, with my husband and four children who endlessly inspire the fanciful nature of my work.
All of my artwork is designed right here in Australia. I simply love creating for children and I hope that’s reflected in Schmooks thoughtfully designed range, made specially for the precious little ones in your life.
