Award-winning artist, Clarice M Shirvell, long time resident of Ridgefield, CT is well known for her accomplishments in both pen and ink drawings, and acrylic paintings inspired by nature. Her artwork has been purchased for both private and public collections and has been in over 50 solo, juried, and group shows in both museums and galleries.

A graduate of Marymount College with a degree in Studio Art and Business, the artist sketches in pen and ink and paints en plein air as a form of meditation. The artist reentered the art world, selected for the Annual Juried Art Show at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists with her pen and India ink drawing “Seated Figure”, which sold. Clarice gave a lecture as the Guild’s featured Walk and Talk Artist.

“ I feel very fortunate to be able to express myself through the visual arts. I sketch whenever I have a moment; a pad and a micron pen wherever I go. Sketching is calming and meditative and helps me see the world around me to appreciate its beauty in something that may be overlooked in a busy life.”

Clarice comes from a family of diverse artists, born in the States, of Argentine parents, her Latina heritage and values combined with her love of nature inspires her artwork.

More recently selected for the National Juried show of Women Artists, for her painting, displayed at the Slater Memorial Museum. She taught en plein air and acrylic painting and is the founder and facilitator for The Artist’s Way Study Group of Ridgefield and co-chaired the Ridgefield Guild of Artists Annual Juried show.
