This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Clarissa Love is a Nebraska artist, who discovered her artistic ability in 1990 with a simple pencil sketch.  Realizing her talent lead her to try mix media and enroll in art class at Omaha Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, Nebraska.  The first subjects for her work were African and Native American portraits and wildlife.  In 2002 Love started art classes at Threlkeld Studios, Omaha, Nebraska under Isabella Threlkeld.

The majority of her large works are in colored pen, ink and pencil.  This medium is used on large poster board.  The artist line and expression is dynamic.  When asked how she creates she smiles and states “One line at a time.”

The Village Series of her art depict Samburo Elder, Samburo Sisterhood, Samburo Groom, Samburo Bride, Wedding Procession, Bachelor Party, Keeper of the Camels, Wodaabe Elder, Blue Man, Blue Lady and Butterfly Lady, Jima, Village Wood Gather, and Somila Weave.

The exhibitions are credited to Love’s career.  These  include solo exhibit: 1993 The Pride Collection, Embassy Suites, Omaha, NE; 2006 The Wedding Series, Village Series including wildlife and portraits, La Casa, Omaha, NE.  The following group exhibitions and competitions: 1994-1995 Nebraska Arts Council, The Malone Center-Malone Center Juneteenth Celebration, Lincoln, NE; UNMAA 21st Annual Art Exhibit and Competition, 1st Place in Pen and Ink, University of Nebraska Medical School, Omaha, NE; Art Expo, featuring L. Alston, A. C. Lofton, N. Murray and C. Love at the Bistro Restaurant, Omaha, NE; Haymarket Exhibitions, Lincoln, NE.

Love is a breast cancer survivor.  She understands two things about her art.  First, creating pictures keeps her going, so she lives for the “joy of art”.  Second, time is not forever, so she only has a limited time to create her “art”.  As an artist her love ones and family are the greatest influences to her art.  Their support brings her joy and artistic inspiration.  Other members of her family are performing artists.

Her art is held is in private and public collections throughout Nebraska and Iowa, including Metropolitan Community College, Omaha, Nebraska, and the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
