About Me


Hello, I’m Clare.

I am a photographer, modern quilter, food lover and ‘semi-crunchy’ creative.

I’m interested in sustainability and try (not always successfully) to minimise my impact on the environment.  I’m a keen supporter of a local organic growing cooperative and I’m also actively involved in the management of a community woodland near my home.

I’m married to Jim, mum to Theo (born Aug 11) and Alice (born Oct 15) We also have two slightly crazy dogs.

Although I am now firmly settled in the beautiful county of Sussex, I have also spent time living in Germany, Cyprus, Canada and Scotland.

Maybush Studio is my literal creative space in our garden and my virtual creative space online. This blog focuses on “creative family living” which for me encompasses photography, design, interiors and crafts. This year I’m also hoping to include a bit of gardening with that, although I am a complete novice in that department!

I’m passionate about community, homemade bread, quality not quantity, saving things from landfills, walking, learning, laughter, the medicinal benefits of a glass of red wine and being positive.
