Clarissa Beothy worked as an industrial metalworker in her native Hungary before fleeing Communism in 1969 to settle in the West. Subsequently she became a student at Falmouth College of Art. Her work reflects her attempt to show the barriers that she (and others) face in their 'lives full of limitations'. She is a sculptor working in a range of materials: wax, soap, ceramic, resin and bronze.
The artist is listed as a member of NSA (2010).
