Stella works across several focus areas, or collections; ''The Art of Nostalgia', 'Landscapes', 'By the Sea' and 'Portraiture'. 

"In 'The Art of Nostalgia' my focus is often figurative, human, and narrative.  These paintings are inspired by a spectrum of childhood, personal or cultural memories. 

The 'Landscapes' are profound responses to the quiet beauty of places I where I have lived and walked in Australia, usually with my dogs.  Presently, I am immersing myself in the Victorian landscape around Ballarat.

The 'By the Sea' paintings are an expression of my strong attachment to coastal life, having grown up on the East Anglian coast in the UK, and spent years living by the bay in Melbourne, and exploring the peninsula and Victorian coastline."  Stella Clarke
