Biographie en cours de traduction

Claire McArdle is an internationally recognized sculptor. After earning a Bachelor in Fine Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University, she moved to Italy in 1988 to work with the master carvers in Carrara. She continues to travel to Italy to quarry and rough out her works in marble and travertine.Her style has been influenced by classical figures and the soul that speaks within tribal art, but her figures emerge from her own personal mythology and archetypes. Her energy for exploring these mysteries and an insatiable passion for working stone, clay, and bronze, combine to create forms with harmonious balance and an ethereal quality.

Her works are in private and public collections throughout the United States, Europe, Mexico and Japan. She was selected to carve marble sculptures on-site for two public parks in Japan.

McArdle's commissions for public, educational, and religious institutions include monumental works for Spring Hill College, Mobile, AL, Marian House, Baltimore, MD, The Holton-Arms School, Bethesda, MD, St. Bede, Williamsburg, VA, Holy Trinity Church, Washington, DC, Holy Redeemer College, Washington, DC as well as many private commissions. Reviews include The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun, Annapolis Lifestyle, Pasatiempo, The Santa Fe New Mexican, The Capital Gazette, The Daily Record, and the Osaka Shinbun.??She is a member of the Washington Sculptors Group, the National Museum of Women in the Arts and International Sculpture Center and the National Sculpture Society.
