Jeannie Clark - Colour wallJEANNIE CLARK – STUDIO

I have a dedicated work space in my home in Sherwood. I have space to work, and I create artwork most days. Creating or thinking about art is part of who I am. If I’m not working on one of my projects, or teaching online in my studio I feel very odd.
