Masha Clarkson

I am a local self-taught artist, with great interest in trying different technics and materials. I enjoy mostly water colour and pastel medium, but recently have discovered acrylics.

I was born in Moscow in a family of architects and was always watching my parents sketching and drawing. Later in life I moved to Devon and started discovering beautiful coastline and National Parks like Dartmoor, which was great contrast with city life and gave me a lot of inspiration. I am taking my ideas for paintings from Dartmoor changing weather and colours although I also enjoy still life themes and portraits. I had undertaken some online teaching courses on painting and am still learning while attending work-shops of local Devon artists.

I am a member of Topsham Art Group and usually take part in our annual Summer exhibition.
