Crooked Beauty was born out of Carmen Clark’s desire to share her art supplies, bring people together, and support other artists. The name Crooked Beauty was inspired by her respect for imperfection, the beauty in the cracks, the uneven lines, and the “rejects”.

Crooked Beauty combines Carmen’s love of art and teaching. She is convinced every single person can be creative, and that art encompasses a wide breadth of genres. She is a believer in mistakes, and failure is a chance for growth and learning (both in art and life!). Carmen has a background in teaching; from kindergarten to adults, from at-risk youth to the intellectually disabled.

Crooked Beauty is committed to welcoming all people and hopes the community Crooked Beauty builds is as eclectic and diverse as the world is.

Easy and awesome results for this first time linocutter :) Carmen was friendly, patient, and makes art fun. I did this with my husband and visiting mom and aunt, and it was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and learn/make something new.

Amazing experience! The teacher was wonderful and it was such a calming and satisfying activity. I underestimated how fun printmaking could be!
