Claire Ishino is an Adelaide-based artist with a background in Jewellery Design. She spent several years living and working in Japan, making colourful jewellery from tiny washi paper collages, resin and silver, before returning to Adelaide where she now concentrates on producing gouache or acrylic paintings and black and white illustrations.
Claire exhibits and sells her paintings and limited edition prints through local galleries, shops and design markets. Her work has been licensed to teNeues Publishing Co. in New York for use on stationery and she was also featured as one of 100 illustrators in ‘Work/Life 3: The UPPERCASE directory of Illustrators’ published by Janine Vangool in Canada.
Claire’s work is inspired by nature, words, thoughts, emotions and her love of colour, repetition and pattern. Her style is clean and graphic with crisp edges between colours and small details reflective of her background in Jewellery. She strives to create pieces of art that bring joy to your heart and happiness to your home.
