Mixed Media. My artwork is an evolution of exploration and expression of the beauty found in nature. I work with a variety of materials and forms creating unique colors and textures to tell the story of beauty, joy, and complex simplicity found in nature.


3 Dimensional

In 2013 I began working with wire and beads to express movement, wonder and a deeper dimension to my work.


In 2014 I began working with paper, cloth, wire and other materials to create  Fine Art Collectables - textured multimedia bowls, baskets and vases. I can create custom keepsakes for special events or gifts. Contact me for details.

CLARAfications is about beautification. I love taking used items and up-cycling them for new uses. My ceiling fixtures are made with heat-treated organic fibers, retired jewelry and other found objects. My "Messy Boots" have been a huge hit - particularly for the holidays and special events. Click below for more one-of-a-kind pieces.

As one of ClaraKhay's first customers I have enjoyed watching her style evolve and I can't stop collecting her work!
