Baya Clare was born in Missouri in 1959, and later spent 16 years living in Colorado. She has been in Minnesota since 1986, and has been a Sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet (a Catholic nun) since 1998. In addition to her work as a photographer, artist and writer, she ministers in prisons and jails, and offers spiritual direction here and there.

“We humans can get stuck in some pretty mean and monotonous dead ends sometimes. I think the work of all artists is to challenge and question those, to push the walls out so light and delight can get back in and we can remember who and what we really are. We can be generous. We can live together peacefully. Everyone can flourish; everyone is meant to flourish.

“I hope that my work brings you joy and flourishing. That is its purpose.”
