Traveling the globe to tackle topics ranging from architecture, history, and public policy to the wonders of the natural world, Clare worked with renowned scientists, astronauts, and veterans, and became known for her emotional storytelling. Her collaborators include Dr. Robert Ballard, the undersea explorer who found the wreck of the Titanic, the Apollo astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins, William Anders, and Charlie Duke, the former Senator and the 2008 Republican nominee for President, John S.

Clare is the co-author with artist Steve Maloney of the art book/memoir, Take Me Home Huey: Honoring American Heroes Through Art. Take Me Home Huey is the moving story of Maloney's mission to honor Vietnam veterans by transforming a shattered medevac helicopter that was shot down on Valentine's Day 1969, into a sculptural memorial to honor those who served. The book documents, through stunning photographs and Maloney's narrative, how the artwork evolved from a wish to honor Vietnam service members into a touchstone for solace and connection among veterans, including some with PTSD.
Her international experience spans 25 countries including China and India.
