Claire Matthews

I am an avid reader and storyteller, and have always had a love for words. Since scrawling out stories from an early age, I have dreamed of becoming a published author. When not writing, editing or journaling, I am a keen violinist, classical music lover, and a member of a youth orchestra. Whether I’m jamming to the beat or splashing paint on canvas or clicking the shutter and seeing the world through the viewfinder, I always keep my spark alive.
