About

Helen Manning Clark - BIOGRAPHY

In 2014, Helen Manning Clark showed at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum in their widely acclaimed and hugely influential “From Club to Catwalk” exhibition. This step into public gallery and museum presence marked a significant milestone in a career, which has seen her design textile artwork for clients such as Paul Smith, Betty Jackson, Yves Saint Laurent and Calvin Klein, amongst others. High-fashion clothing collections bearing her designs have, for decades, been sold around the world in major luxury stores including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Harrods and Liberty of London.

Graduating from London’s Royal College of Art, in 1983 Manning Clark received both an MA and the coveted travelling scholarship to explore physically and through her artwork, the landscapes of the southern Mediterranean. Now focusing almost exclusively on large-scale painterly abstract works, she is a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy, an invited artist to Mall Galleries exhibitions and has appeared on the BBC Culture Show.

Her glowing colours and broad brushstrokes convey luminous, sensual and unique images inspired by flowering plants and both natural and urban landscapes. They have ignited the interest of private and public collectors alike around the world including the V&A, who hold works in their permanent collection as well as Glasgow School of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago who recently acquired several pieces each for their archives.
