About Clara Tomaz

I see myself as an adventurous artist. The media I use in my studio span in history from the Ancient Greeks to the latest technology and app: this keeps my mind open and makes me feel that everything in-between is possible. I create videos for private and corporate clients in the Chicagoland and then I mix beeswax and damar resin to create paintings and assemblages in the original Roman technique of 'Encaustic' with a contemporary twist. I work following my free inspiration, participate in film festivals, exhibit in art galleries, and also take on commission work from clients who want to embark on creative adventures with me. I am particularly grateful for these collaborations as they always make me a better artist.

Education

​Born and raised near Milan - Italy - in the 1970s, I travelled extensively, earned my MFA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NY, then settled in the North Shore of Chicago in 2011 - where I now live and work.
