After 30 years working as a doctor, listening to people comes naturally. Understanding what a client would like to see as part of their design is essential in creating something unique and meaningful to them. This might be a special birthday or anniversary message, a logo, a tribute to a loved one or pet, or a charity event promotion. Hearing about a person’s story, their interests, character and family structure, allows me to distill them into a drawing that I translate into sand art.
The client shares the essence of what they would like included in the design and after I send them sketches, we agree on the final image. This way there are no unexpected results. Following the sand drawing, I take images and video with my drone, including the beautiful surrounding coastal area. These are sent to the client soon afterwards, in ready to share on social media format and also in high quality files, suitable for printing or making a photobook.
The designs can be created as a complete surprise for loved ones, presenting them with the images and video on their special day. Alternatively, sand art experience days can be arranged for individuals or small groups. People that have shared the beach drawing process describe a lifting of spirits and a real sense of well being. The combination of being outside, doing something physical and creative in a beautiful place seems to really resonate with those involved. This is something that I have always encouraged during my medical career and it now continues through my sand art.
I have had the pleasure of working with Claire Eason twice. Firstly, our creation of a tribute to the film Edward Scissorhands and secondly a depiction of David Bowie. Claire is a most wonderfully friendly and patient person, with an encouraging attitude. All, are essential qualities in guiding people to learn sand art. I greatly enjoyed following the journey of each piece of sand art I have created with Claire. Seeing the photographs and the video footage of our creations from her "eye in the sky" drone sprinkled the experience with fairy dust. Our first joint project even found it's way into the national newspapers and YouTube. When the tide is low, the canvas is ready. Claire will show you the way.
My name is Brian and I wish to broadcast how happy I have been to work with Claire to produce a terrific memento for my wife on our Golden Anniversary. Between us we teased out all the main things my wife and I had in common and represented them on a work of art, fashioned on the beach and filmed and photographed from the sky.
The image included our family members, travel our school emblem and song title, our football club and home town, our current town, our County, the date of our wedding: all surrounding a big number 50.
Claire and I worked on it for months in secret through messenger and it was a total surprise for my wife, Lynn on our Anniversary day last month. Brownie points by the bucket load.
Thank you Claire. Brilliant.
Beadnell beach has always been a special place for many reasons! On our 21st Wedding Anniversary, my husband Paul surprised me with a 20 meter image of our beloved schnauzer Tilly. We'd like to thank Claire for raking her magic in the sand! You have a fantastic talent! Keep spreading the joy! Karyn and Paul of Low Fell XX
We at Newbiggin-by-the-Sea Dolphin Watch have admired Cloud Dancer's work for a long time and when a new logo was created for our group we asked Cloud Dancer to create the logo as a piece of sand art for our mid summer watch. Right from the word go nothing was too much trouble and we were consulted throughout the planning, we loved Cloud Dancer's enthusiasm and attention to detail. Cloud Dancer travelled to Newbiggin and created our logo as a beautiful piece of sand art. Not only did she create a beautiful piece of art for us she also created and edited a fantastic video. We would definitely recommend Cloud Dancer!
I contacted cloud dancer photography to ask if they could do something special for my cousin Gavin who sadly passed away age 40 to a very aggressive form of cancer , Gavin loved Seahouses especially the beach, the pictures and videos are beautiful the whole family love them so much , the hands represent Gavin and his wife Amy children Sophie Kieron Ryan and Emily , Gavins beloved dog Charlie’s paw print , his favourite football team Newcastle United and his name, thanks again for your talented work with your art work and drone x
Claire spontaneously and freely produced her incredible sand art at an event I organise. It was perfect! She then offered an ENTIRE day of her life to teach me how she does it. Simply because she is overflowing with love. And art! She is an insanely generous and talented being. Spend some time with her... xxx
Absolutely brilliant, professional service.
We were very privileged to have Cloud Dancer Photography help us to deliver an important-safety message for the RNLI. Would highly recommend.
Thank you so much to Claire for her brilliant support of "Team Flamingo" in memory of Rachel Parks a local school teacher, who was supported by HospiceCare. Team Flamingo are taking on the Druridge Bay 10k event this Sunday and what a lovely way to remember Rachel.
