Native Surroundings Thread paintings | Stephanie K. Clark


Stephanie K. Clark was born in Portland, Oregon. Stephanie has always had a passion for art and being creative in whatever life gives her. 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 says:

I consider myself a painter and I paint with thread. The process of transforming string into art struck me as something visually stimulating with complex simplicity.  My background in painting has allowed me to explore the material using techniques from the worlds of drawing and painting. Engaging both traditional and innovative techniques in employing formal qualities with density, texture and pattern. The embroidery floss is my palette and the needle is my paintbrush. Embroidery has had its way with me, leading me from hobby to art. My work is an ode and influenced by the worlds of tapestry and my love for craft. Using thread instead of oils has allowed me to bring new purpose to my painting process. My work blurs the lines between fine art and craft. I like to think I can reclaim the word “craft” which contains the idea of an unusual frame of knowledge and skill passed on from generation to generation. The use of craft such as embroidery fits my concept of domesticity, therefore my process and material becomes involved in the concept of my work.
