Between sneezes last night, I found myself drooling over the sets in Boardwalk Empire (again) and flipping through the online portfolio of Cornwall-based illustrator Clare Owen. Clare has a beautiful new London Snow Globe print at Papermash ($74) and I couldn’t get enough of her sweet fashion-based illustrations, like the two-tone flats and perfume bottle above. These would be so sweet framed in a woman’s dressing room. Click here to check out more of Clare’s beautiful work online, here for her Etsy shop and here to pick up her print at Papermash. xo, grace

Clare’s illustration for Frankie Magazine


LOVE that ‘make do and mend’ print.
So much that I had to hop over to the shop and pick one up for my little house.

I really, really adore that last illustration. “make, do, and mend.”
Any idea if it’s available as a print?


I commissioned a portrait of my fiance and I from Clare recently! She’s absolutely lovely and totally delightful to work with.

So funny that you posted this. I just ordered her Make Do and Mend print last week. In fact, I was the one who requested that she re-list them! Crazy small world!


Thank-you for showing her lovely work.
Can the “make do and mend” illustration be purchased?? This would be a great addition to my sewing room


Thought the name sounded familiar! :-) I have her “Lady beardprint” hanging on the wall in my library.


I was delighted when I opened my copy of Frankie a few months back and found this gem. Frankie is one of my favourite things about Australia since moving here from Canada. It resides on my fridge and I smile every time I pass it.
