Claire has worked in animation for over 25 years. For much of that time, she and her partner ran a small studio, Pesky. As pioneers of Flash and interactive animation, they worked on over 120 projects for TV, web, print and licensing.
Pesky developed many kids TV series ideas and even got to make a few! She won a BAFTA for co-directing The Amazing Adrenalini Brothers, before creating and directing Boj for CBeebies.
In recent years Claire has worked freelance as a development consultant and editor before joining Blue Zoo in 2020 as assistant director on It’s Pony.
Away from the desk Claire plays guitar, sings and is often found strolling over the South Downs with her fluffy friend Biscuit!
