Meet the Artist
Watercolour Artist - Claire Robinson
Hello! I am Claire and I love animals and painting them!
For as long as I can remember, I have been a lover of all animals. From a young age, I was fascinated by all creatures big and small. I would read animal books determined to become knowledgeable enough to become a vet when I was older.
I spent much of my adolescence riding horses with my border collie, Chloe, by my side.
In addition to my love of animals, I also grew up with a love for drawing, painting and creating. My father is an extremely talented artist and I have always looked up to him. He still continues to encourage my dreams and is incredibly supportive. Check out his art here!
I lost my mother, Julie, in 2019.
It was a very difficult time for my family and painting became my therapy. Rediscovering my love for art helped me navigate my grief and calmed my anxious mind.
Soon I was gifting portraits to everyone at my workplace and I found that I couldnt wait to go home and start my next painting. It was then I realised that this is what I wanted to do with my future.
So I took a leap of faith and Lucy & Coco was born.
I am so humbled that what started as gifting pet portraits to friends and family for fun, has now become Lucy & Coco pet portraits! But more importantly, I feel so lucky to be able to do what I love full-time.
All the products in Lucy & Coco contains my original art. I hope you will enjoy the creations as much as I enjoyed creating each one of them.
In 2021, I will also fulfilling another lifelong dream - illustrating a children's book. I can't wait to showcase what I have done.
