A graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art – one of the leading art and design schools in the United States – in graphics and illustration, McClellan has continuously explored new techniques and learned new crafts.

She works well with traditional media such as ink, pencil, pastels and oils, besides acrylics, and has also practised diverse methods such as scratch board, lithographs, ceramics and silk screens, as well as lacquer, large murals and mixed media. She regularly presents women as her subjects and draws inspiration from a wide variety of cultures.

After moving to Viet Nam, McClellan has been studying the local lacquer techniques.

“Flex” will be her first exhibition in Viet Nam, and will feature nearly 30 lacquer boards whose primary subjects are women.

The exhibition will be held at Nguyen Art Gallery, 31A Van Mieu Street, from April 17 to 26.
