"I wanted to highlight some local areas that often get overlooked in everyday life," shares artist Michele Clamp. On this peaceful sunny day, Michele offers a view of the Somerville Church in New England from the open sidewalk. "I wanted to emphasize the juxtaposition of the clean, white lines of the church with the gray and brown surroundings of urban streets. It struck a chord that has resonated emotionally and visually. The piece is intentionally painted loosely and softly with many lost edges and indistinct lines. This effect was enhanced by the use of soft press watercolor paper."

Artist Michele Clamp creates watercolor paintings mainly of New England scenes and places she has a personal connection to. "Using traditional brushes and pigments, I enjoy how the simplicity of tools allows me to grapple with the challenges of watercolor," says Michele. "The deceptive simplicity of this medium has a huge attraction for me." As a scientist, Michele worked in many interesting areas including the Human Genome Project. And in 2017, she decided to paint full-time as well as teach art lessons and conduct workshops. Michele states that an idea can take months or years to filter through her brain before sitting down to paint on her easel. In her studio, she enjoys working in peace and quiet with her blinds open to the sun and the trees outside. "As I mostly use watercolor, cleanliness is not so much of a problem," says Michele. "And my husband keeps me on my toes by periodically asking 'Why is there paint on the ceiling?'"
