Inspired by bits of forgotten history and the natural world, Clara’s work is driven by her insatiable curiosity. Each of her field guides and scientific renderings begin the old school way: with plenty of research. So it’s not surprising that every sailor’s knot, animal track or tree branch is especially accurate to the real thing, in addition to being beautiful. Making things even more interesting, Clara is a self-taught artist. She’d always been interested in researching and creating, and pursued her craft during her spare moments. After several years, her practice paid off, and she pursued illustration full time. Now she spends her days satisfying that itch to both learn and create, and she does it all with care: every art print or towel uses only eco-friendly, fair trade or US-made materials.
