About Bleats & Blossom

With skinny little legs and a fluffy body, Shaun is the perfect muse for this design inspired by travels in Japan and beautiful sakura cherry blossom. Sakura trees bloom for just one-to-two weeks, and for artist Claire Havell they symbolise the beauty and fragility of life and the importance of making the most of every moment we have together. So, why not enjoy a moment of peace here by the blossoms and cherish someone you love today?

Claire is a designer and illustrator based in Brighton. Inspired by nature, folklore, and travels abroad, she enjoys using bold, bright, colours to create quirky art that makes people smile.
