Stephanie Kelly Clark

Stephanie K. Clark was born in Portland, Oregon.  Her family later moved to a farm in the small town of Urbana, Missouri where she grew up. Stephanie has always had a passion for art and being creative in whatever life gives her.  She has always been supported by great family and friends throughout all her creative endeavours.  Even though she’s loved cultivating her hand at art during her high-school years, her passion for creating art really blossomed while attending Dixie State College in southern Utah 2006. 

Stephanie then decided to take her art education further, studying her undergrad in Painting and Drawing at the University of Utah; where she graduated Fall of 2011.  In Stephanie’s experience at the University of Utah, she had learned by many of her instructors in whom feels has really pushed her to grow creatively and conceptually in her work.  Stephanie had explored many mediums and ways of creating art.  She then discovered her love for working with embroidery and thread drawings (drawing with her sewing machine).  Most of Stephanie’s work consists of fiber art, mixing paint and thread/embroidery. 

 Stephanie is currently living in Salt Lake City, Utah with her dearest husband/Sculptor Artist Robin Clark and her two children. Stephanie has shown in many galleries throughout the country and completed an art residency at the Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah 2013. She spends most of her time being a mommy, a wife, and an artist; sewing, painting, embroidering and pursuing any avenue to exploring the creative process.
