Sandra Clark • Village Galleries Maui


Maui painter Sandra Clark has turned her hand to the art of glass. Creating glass landscapes by combining vitreous painting with creative kiln forming, Sandra captures Maui's extraordinary colors and vistas. This unique color spectrum process, glass layering technique, and kiln forming of up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit make each piece a work of art.

While living as a teenager in Tokyo, Japan, she was entranced with the aesthetics of everyday Japanese life and studied many of Japan's traditional art forms. What truly captivated her, however, were the masters painters. Studying the arts as an undergraduate and graduate student, Sandra received a BA from Pennsylvania State University, and MA from Northern Illinois University, and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Her interest in art and painting led Sandra into the academic world, teaching and inspiring college students. Retiring recently from university teaching, she moved to Maui, spending more time in her studio and participating in juried exhibitions.

Artist's Statement..."Living and working in Maui is so inspiring," Sandra says. "I want my art to be an expression of the human experience embodied with the aesthetics of the culture it represents. My glass landscapes capture Maui's spirit and light.
