A native of Washington, D.C. and third-generation artist, Clare’s training includes a degree in Fine Art and years of printmaking study at the Corcoran College of Art. Her focus on printmaking allows her to integrate a broad range of artistic interests: drawing, photography, digital imaging, design and painting. Clare’s work has been included in group and solo shows at the Washington Printmaker’s Gallery, the Corcoran Museum of Art, and Civilian Art Projects in Washington, D.C, as well as in Houston and Shanghai. Her work in influenced by the places where she has lived, including Tokyo, Washington DC, and Los Angeles.
Clare’s current body of work is united by the theme of ecology. Whether created with acrylic, silkscreen, or etching press, each piece contains an effort to bring texture to the surface of the print by layering images or marks, to add depth and actively engage the viewer.
According to the artist, “Each project is a challenge for me — finding the delicate balance between process and feeling.”
