EXCITED EACH TIME SHE LIFTS A BRUSH AND DIPS IT INTO PAINT

A native Atlantan, she received a BFA degree from the Atlanta College of Art, majoring in painting and printmaking. Clara has pursued a career as a professional abstract painter for about 25 years. The New York abstract expressionist painters of the mid-1960s greatly influenced her work over the years…and into her painting today. “I work on large canvas, use broad brushes and get my whole self into the painting. I’m in constant motion as I work all over the surface to create a unified whole.” Working daily in her Atlanta studio, Clara produces large works in oil. “I’m a spiritual person and feel a connection with a higher power in what I do. I think my talent is a gift and I have an obligation to use that gift.”
