Artist: Clara Miller Burd

Today's charming art is by artist: Clara Miller Burd was born in New York City. 
She attended the Chase School and National Academy of Design in New York and studied at Courtois and Colarossi in Paris. Later, she studied portrait painting with Renardo and received several awards for this work. She also studied stained glass design at Tiffany Studios. She had an exhibit at the National Academy of Design in 1900.
Burd illustrated children’s books, designed magazine covers and painted portraits of children. She also designed many stained glass windows, including a memorial window for President McKinley in Ohio. She built many windows of her own design for many churches, as well as painting mural decorations for them. The magazines she illustrated for were Woman’s Home Companion, Woman’s World, Literary Digest, Modern Priscilla, Farmer’s Wife, Canadian Hone-Journal, and Holland’s.
