"I am so happy that I have now turned my love of creating and art in to a full time job."

Hi I am Claire.

I started sharing my hobby of creating Home décor DIYs on my You Tube channel, Claire’s Crafty Corner four years ago. I am from the East End of London and grew up with very creative parents, musically and artistically.

I am so happy that I have now turned my love of creating and art in to a full time job. Working with resin and Jesmonite changed the direction of my channel three years ago and are both now my main craft.

In July 2021 I quit my 9-5 job of 15 years to pursue YouTube as a full-time artist. I had never been self-employed, it was a scary prospect.

I had to make a decision about what truly makes me happy. Fuelled absolutely by the Pandemic. It made me evaluate everything in my life. What truly made me happy was creating. I decided to quit my 9-5 job for a 24/7.

We can all laugh at this as I no longer finish work at 5pm… far from it! Working for myself allowed me the freedom to go from two to three videos a week which has increased my reach and I have been lucky to meet so many new people because of it.  It has been the best decision for my own well being and happiness.
