Clare's Work
With a background in contemporary quilting Clare’s work now centers around mixed media collage in its many forms, on both paper and fabric as well as using encaustic wax.
Clare was awarded a residency at the Jentel Foundation in Wyoming in 2005.  In 2012 she received a Stark County Artist Grant creating “The Handkerchief Memory Project”, working with Seniors in the community to record their memories visually on handkerchiefs. 

Her exhibits include two acceptances to Quilt National, exhibits in Canada and Tokyo, Japan, as well as several one person shows in Ohio, South Carolina, Michigan and California.  She was also invited to exhibit in the Third Encaustic Invitational Exhibit held in Tucson Arizona.
Her quilts and collages are in many private collections.
