Claire Driscoll, artist, illustrator, designer and co-owner of art space Work Room Four has had an eclectic, multi-disciplinary artistic background which shapes the way she works today. On graduating from a fashion degree her graduate collection was picked up by leading UK high street retailer Topman. Claire went on to collaborate with different designers, including Six Eight Seven Six doing pattern cutting. She then made a move into film and costume, including a six month stint making armour for Oliver Stone directed film, Alexander. For a number of years Claire juggled different types of projects; working in both costumes and fashion, lecturing, running a small leather wallet business as well as some personal art and illustration projects.
Since moving to Hanoi with her family three years ago she has worked at both Raffles and the London School of Fashion, has done illustrations for various publications and created artwork, shown at venues around Hanoi, including currently being exhibited at Manzi.
