Claire Wyldheart is an arts graduate of Manchester Metropolitan University where she also got to attend the legendary Hacienda club after years of collecting DJ mixtapes of early Acid House music as a teen. After a string of design jobs Claire followed her childhood dream and published her first children's book, I Have a Bear with Brolly Books whilst living in Australia.
Upon returning to the United Kingdom Wyldheart continued to develop original children's books and assisted Will Wright with filmmaking, providing art direction, costuming and set dressing on various commercial productions. This led to a collaborative partnership focused on making art informed by their shared spiritual practice. Claire incorporates dressmaking and sculpture into creating custom dolls and toys that reflect her shamanic encounters and insights.
Wyldheart & Wright is the artistic partnership through which Claire and Will produce work drawn from the experiences they have whilst in ritual trance. The results mix folklore and occulture with toy art, doll photography, including influences such as rave flyer design and graffiti. Wyldheart & Wright have been publishing Wyrd throughout 2021, becoming a well regarded occult zine that discusses their philosophy, art and experiences.
