About the Artist

Artist's Bio

A native of Washington, D.C. and third-generation artist, Clare’s training includes a degree in painting, a master’s degree in Teaching, and years of printmaking study at the Corcoran College of Art. Her focus on printmaking has allowed her to integrate a broad range of artistic interests: drawing, photography, digital imaging and painting. Clare’s work has been included in group and solo shows at the Washington Printmaker’s Gallery, the Corcoran Museum of Art, Civilian Art Projects in Washington, D.C, the US and overseas. She is a former Denbo fellow at the Pyramid Atlantic Art Center and received an Artist and Scholars Grant from the Humanities Council of Montgomery County, Maryland.  Clare’s current body of work is united by the themes of connectivity, loss, and the decline of nature. Whether created with acrylic, silkscreen, or etching press, each piece aims to bring texture to the surface of the work by layering images and marks in order to draw in the viewer. According to the artist, “Each project presents a challenge for me–how to maintain a delicate balance between process and feeling.”
