Clare ChalliceFounder, Designer & Account Manager

Clare’s experience as a designer and illustrator runs over 20 years (qualified with a degree in Graphic Design), with many years agency work, where amongst other high profile clients she was instrumental in developing the Bristol Water conservation account. Clare then founded Dandi Creative Design in 2003 (latterly Inkwood Design) as a direct result of her passion for wildlife and conservation, and the belief that there was a clear need for a specialist design service within the wildlife, environment and conservation sectors.

When not designing Clare creates and exhibits watercolour paintings inspired by her life-long passion for conservation and the beauty of wildlife, and donates a proportion of her sales to conservation. Her current body of work can be viewed at www.wildart.uk.com

Abi Stubbs
Abi StubbsWildlife Illustrator
Abi is qualified with a Diploma in Wildlife Illustration and a degree in Graphic Design where she also specialised in illustration (Abi and Clare actually went to the same university). She has spent many years illustrating for conservation organisations and was key in developing the first community Wildlife Action Pack (pioneered by Avon Wildlife Trust) in the early 90s. It was subsequently adopted and used by Wildlife Trusts nationally.

Abi has been drawing insects and flowers as far back as she can remember, and is just as passionate about wildlife and conservation – that’s why we love having her on board. Abi is a member of the RSPB and the Woodland Trust. In her spare time you will find her scuba diving, and she is also a keen supporter of marine conservation.
