About Claire

Claire Robertson is an Australian artist, illustrator and filmmaker based on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada.

She weaves the whimsy of her island life into her work, incorporating the local flora and fauna in her characteristic style. 

She was a producer on the 2018 short film Cascadia, a fantasy adventure that premiered at the Lucid Dream Film Festival in Italy and is currently in consideration for film festivals worldwide. She is also co-creator and producer of Snug, currently in post production. In May 2019 her screenplay Lucid was short-listed in Cinevic’s CineSpark screenplay competition, and after a fierce live pitch-battle, won first place and a prize package to produce the film.

She is well known for her much loved (prehistoric!) blog loobylu.com for which she has won many awards and accolades. She is also known for her iconic illustrations for the Truly Tan series, written by Jen Storer for Harper Collins Australia.

Claire works digitally but also in traditional media: watercolours, paper-cutting, ceramics and textiles.
