Clara Lieu

I am a visual artist and an adjunct professor at the Rhode Island School of Design where I have taught for since 2007. I created, a free, online educational platform for visual arts for people of all ages and means.

My studio practice explores isolation and mental illness through drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. Currently, I am working on a series of graphite drawings called Scars that Speak. Exhibitions have been at the International Print Center New YorkBromfield Gallery, the Danforth Museum of Art, the Currier Museum of Art, and the Davis Museum.

I have been featured on NPRTwo Coats of Paint, Art New England, Artscope Magazine, and 89.3 KPCC. I have written for the New York Times and Education Week, and received artist grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, The Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, and the Puffin Foundation.
