Painting Holiday with Stephie Clark

Stephie Clark is an Australian based soft pastel artist, best known for her uninhibited exploration of the natural world. Self-taught, Stephie began her love affair with soft pastels in 2011, cultivating inspiration from the Impressionism art movement and her close observation of beauty in nature. Naturally, she is also drawn to nature photography and uses many of her original photographs as references in her soft pastel paintings.  

Since becoming a full-time artist, Stephie divides her time between painting in her country studio in Armidale and teaching workshops at home, online and abroad. She loves sharing the raw potential of the pastel medium, bringing a subject to life through colour, light and composition. Stephie cherishes her connection with her many students worldwide and has an active Patreon community in which she shares monthly tutorials, mentorship and material reviews.

Stephie has been a featured artist in demonstrations held by the Pastel Society in Australia and New Zealand. She is also a member of the Pastel Guild of Europe and has been interviewed & featured in French magazine, Pratique des Arts. Stephie Clark’s original artworks and prints are available for purchase on her website.
