A collagist and painter, Stacey Clarfield Newman has developed a unique method of recycling ephemera and the ancient craft of ebru marbling to create striking hand-painted papers. Most recently, Ms. Clarfield Newman spent two months living and working in Kolkata, India at the Udayan School, a welfare and rehabilitation school for children of leprosy patients. There she taught her techniques of “painting with paper” to 300 children ages 4 - 18, and in February of 2010, she curated and mounted an exhibit of the children’s work, “Art of the Heart”, at the Chamber of Commerce’s Palladian Lounge in Kolkata.
Ms.Clarfield Newman has exhibited widely across the United States and internationally, most recently showing in Chicago; Santa Fe, New Mexico; Montana and in Colorado.

Recent exhibits include “Yin and Yang, East Meets West” at Viridian Artists, Chelsea, New York; and she is a featured artist in the prestigious Miami Red Dot Art Fair 2012, Miami.
