Clarissa enjoys experimenting with a variety of media and
the versatility of technique is a constant progressive development of her work.
Light, line and colour have been a lifelong passion which is expressed in a
variety of subject matter. Her work is mainly representational.

and the Pastel Society, including galleries mainly in the south of England and
Sweden. She was one of the leaders for the Big Draw and is regularly invited to
give demonstrations and workshops as well as teaching, exhibiting and accepting
