Following her childhood dream, she moved to London after completing her formal education, to work for Jim Henson's Creature Shop as a sculptor and designer. Her love for drawing and painting was first inspired by a visit to the Watts Gallery in Compton, near Guildford. Initially she followed this inspiration by researching 19th Century and Old Master Drawing Techniques in the London museums and studied anatomy at the UCL Medical School. In 1997 she moved to Florence, Italy to train at the Florence Academy of Art. After Florence she became a summer student of Odd Nerdrum in Norway for several summers. In 2002 she set up her studio in London. Clarissa's work hangs in private collections in Europe, the US, Japan and South Africa.
