About Me

by Clare Mansell


Hello, I’m Clare.

I am a photographer, maker and marketeer.

I’m interested in sustainability and try (not always successfully) to minimise my impact on the environment. I love living in the countryside and I’m 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 dogs, a Beagle and a Golden Retriever cross.

Although I am now 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 (a wood cabin we built 5 years ago) and my virtual creative space online. My blog focuses on ‘Creative Family Living’ which includes my photography, crafts and cooking, but I also think every day family life often involves a lot of creativity, from stretching budgets to using leftovers and keeping children entertained!

I’m passionate about community, homemade bread, quality over quantity, sustainability, money saving and walking everywhere I can.


Blog collaborations

Maybush Studio is a lifestyle blog focusing on creative family living.

I have spent two decades working in the media and I pride myself on incorporating brands with high quality writing and professional standard photography. I regularly collaborate with brands to produce content, but I currently do not publish third party material such as infographics or guest posts.

I have a youtube channel and have partnered with several brands including Pets At Home, Center Parcs and AO.com. On the blog and across my social media channels I have ongoing partnerships with Springfree Trampolines, Huxter Kids and Le Boat.


I am the in house creative and marketeer for Pinty Plus UK and Plasti Dip UK making videos and devising creative content for them both online and in workshops.

Here are a selection of posts where I worked with brands…
