Founder of the Unity Art Project. I am an artist, printmaker and teacher, interested in working individually and collaboratively.
My work focuses on place and more recently health. My practise incorporates a variety of media - drawing, photography, collage and printmaking. For me, printing is an alchemic, transformative process through which my photographs and line drawings are elevated into something more than the sum of their parts.

Making her own paint is an integral element of her practice - Lisa-Marie collects pigments on the routes she walks, which she uses to create watercolours for her paintings.

SUSAN VERA CLARKE
Susan Vera Clarke is a British artist who lives and works in East London. With a central focus on Etching, Susan explores the boundaries of intaglio techniques and challenges what we traditionally considered to be a ‘print’. She adopts a playful use of colour, stencil and other more conventional etching steps to draw her image and through this allows the method to dictate the aesthetic of each edition. As a result she steps away from the stereotype that’s normally associated with Etching and finds the true impression from her matrix, the plate..
