Emily Clare looks to landforms and plant life to find insight into all varieties of women’s relationships: daughters, mothers, grandmothers, wives, and lovers. She studied at Peabody College (Vanderbilt University), then at the College of Charleston with Leo Manske who introduced her to drawing techniques using graphite, lithographic crayon with turpenoid, watercolors, soft pastels, and mixed media.
