Please visit her garden site at: www.IreneClark.com I strive to integrate the disciplines of painting, printmaking, fresco and book arts. Each of the series of my paintings, prints, and frescoes combine my training in the sciences of Anthropology, Geology, Chemistry, Horticulture, and Environmental Sciences with my artistic process. I seek to extend the technical boundaries of each medium while deepening my artistic statement as an essential component to the formal aspects of my work. .
