A R T S 279 CS D KATHY CLARK The Charleston Lowcountry and its history have played an im- portant role in Kathy Clark's life and art. She often focuses on landscapes that refect enduring feelings for the place she calls home. "Having spent my entire life living on the islands of Charleston has defnitely infuenced my appreciation for history and the ever-changing tidal creeks, marshes, rivers and ocean," Clark says. "For me, translating these visions on paper or canvas has been one of the most satisfying ways of expressing myself." Clark's artistic abilities have developed from a number of sources, including studies with the Gibbes Museum of Art. More recent studies have explored palette knife painting with James Pratt, an artist from New Zealand, and fgure draw- ing with Karen Vecchioni. Clark's work is a combination of impressionism with a touch of realism. She does not follow any defned approach. It is derived from a confuence of varied sources of inspiration. She connects with the subject and brings out the beauty of its meaning. Kathy Clark 843-509-6818
