Inspiration

From the time she was a young girl Clarice Smith was compelled to draw what she saw.  This compulsion grew to wanting to also convey the mood or feeling she felt from a particular scene, big or small.  She is inspired by painters like James McNeil Whistler, Manet, and John Singer Sargent but her inner inspiration comes from another place.

“I compose paintings from the patterns I see in people, places and things; striving to paint the moods they inspire.”
