Charu Clark has an MS in Visualization Sciences from Texas A&M and has worked at Pixar for 10 years as a lighting artist and rendering TD. Her filmography includes Brave, La Luna, Day and Night, Up, Wall-E, Ratatouille and more.
"As a child I would spend hours with a sketchbook and a box of paints. It followed naturally that I pursued a career in the visual arts. Though my day job entails the use of a computer more than a paintbrush, of all technical fields related to computer graphics, Lighting feels the most akin to painting in the real world. That said, the thrill of a paintbrush in my hands is something I cannot live without."
Charu has generously donated two of her original oil paintings to The Mother Hen Project.
