Clare received her BFA in painting from the Museum School, Boston in 1986 and has been persuing her art ever since. She moved to Vermont in 1988 where she felt more comfortable working among the fields and trees. Clare has worked in oils and watercolors but feels her expression comes through most clearly in her prints. More recently she has become interested in glass painting. Using traditional stained glass techniques, she is able to use the natural light to to enhance and transform her work.
