Emily Clare is an artist living and working in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, who’s imagination is sparked by natures beauty and mystique.
She studied at Peabody College (Vanderbilt) and The College of Charleston, with concentrations in drawing and printmaking. Her work has been selected for private collections, and regional, national and international exhibitions.
For Emily, art began as a way to examine the natural world, and has evolved into a deeper exploration of the full range of experiences, emotions, and relationships in her life. She draws her imagery from a lifelong fascination with natures landforms and plant life.
For her current body of work, Emily abstracts parts of plants to create a visual statement that transcends the original. So doing enables her to express emotions that connect her and those who view her creations, to the natural world.
