Claire did a commission for my daughter’s bedroom, and I loved it! It had everything you could want, was bright, happy and gorgeous! There were even some personalized touches in there specific to my little girl! Could not have been happier! Can’t wait to get a portrait done of our whole family! X



Claire created a beautiful portrait for my fiancé’s birthday. It was such a beautiful surprise and a unique and personalised gift for him. Claire was so amazing to work with and so open to any changes that I requested which made the process so smooth and pleasant. Plus she is super talented and has such a keen eye. I had the artwork printed and framed and it sits by our bed for us to admire every day. We love it so much!

I first ‘met’ the delightful Claire Monique when she was chatting happily to Kristie from Connecting Good People on her Tuesday Instapod Drop and I felt like I was watching two old pals have a chat. 

Claire was in gorgeous bright colors and exuded happy energy, I loved what she was about right away and started following her Instagram feed, which turned out to be a good thing because I saw a post about portraits she does, next thing, I’m commissioning Claire to do one of my newly arrived grandson Levi. I sent her a photo and she sent me the portrait quite promptly, I opened it and was thrilled to see our gorgeous boy in all his bright colors smiling back at us.


After this, I invited Claire to come and chat at one of my Table Conversation Lunches in Shoreham and she agreed ~ she came along with bags of her beautiful artwork to share, but before she did, she simply stepped right in to this new group of folks, none of whom knew each other or me or Claire. How good is that? We all connected and bonded over the most delicious food and wine, but importantly, through Claire’s story, where we all felt empathy, that swiftly turned to joy, all led by Claire and her way with words and people. Thank you so much Claire for bringing your shining light to our lunch, it feels wonderful knowing we have connected and since got together again. A new friendship for us all filled with treasure.

Happy Places & Co.

Claire drew original hand lettered digital designs for our social media for 3 months, and she is great at both responding to a prompt/brief and at conceptualising and creating something new from scratch.

She has also painted 5 paintings for our clinic walls as we have expanded, and we are thrilled with the quality, and with the vibrancy they bring to our rooms. Our clients often comment on how bright and happy her paintings are. Again, she responded well to our specifications and was able to take them and run them through her special Claire Monique filter and create something completely original and full of interest.

We are so lucky to have Claire on board bringing her colourful style and uplifting energy to our feed and our clinic rooms!

From the moment I saw Claire’s art, I fell I love with the beautiful and vibrant colours and knew I had to have a piece of my own. My portrait was sent to me quickly and the quality and likeness is exceptional. Wow! It’s such a fun piece to have in our home, thank you Claire, I love it so much!

When I received my Pom Pom crown & clips I cried!! Happy tears! Claire’s creation was so amazingly perfect and it fills my heart up with so much joy every time I wear each piece (which is A LOT) 🌈💖

Before I purchased the Pom Pom crown I was a little apprehensive as some headbands can give me a headache, but this crown fits so perfectly and I love it so much! 🙏

I asked Claire to do a little portrait of me. She turned it around within a day, and I absolutely love it! This year made me want a bright picture of me that sums up the year, and Claire captured me so well. Thanks so much Claire, can’t wait to print it and hang it in my office. I think I might be needing one for my kids soon, too!

Claire’s work is full of positivity and colour and I knew I wanted to own a piece byclairemonique! I loved the ‘Be-YOU-tiful’ design and bought it on an over-sized white tshirt. The colour combination is gorgeous, the quality is really good and the design is part of the tshirt (not stuck on the front) so I know it will last through washes. It has become my Friday outfit of choice paired with jeans and hoops, stepping into the weekend with some self-love and 90’s vibes!

Having known Claire for 20+ years and then reconnected and followed Claire on her journey on social since her recent surgery I was really engaged by the art works and her story about how the art was helping her recovery. I was scrolling one day through my socials and a piece stuck out purely from the colours and the way she had used them in pattern on the canvas. I didn’t even think, just asked how much – and then paid more! It now hangs above my desk in my office and is a great eye catching piece which everyone comments on and gets told the story behind it and the artist. Great art has a great story behind it I believe. Brings the piece to life.

Claire created a customised painting for my partner’s 30th birthday and it’s awesome! The painting features symbols representing parts of her life and personality, all painted in Claire’s trademark fun, colourful style. It’s a great painting that takes pride of place in our bedroom.
