C.D. Clarke travels the world hunting, fishing and painting. He carries his art supplies on his back so that he can paint on location. You can go with him on his sporting trips, or you can commission him to come along on yours. Either way, you get dibs on the paintings.
Boats, leaky waders, fishing rods, wet wool, bird dogs, decoys and shotguns are integral parts of C.D.'s life. He paints them with a sportsman's understanding, making his work essential to the true sportsman's art collection.
C.D. Clarke was born in Rochester, NY and received his BFA in painting from Syracuse University in 1981. His life long interest in the outdoors, hunting and fishing in particular, has made it a subject for a substantial portion of his work. C.D. prefers to work from life whenever possible, painting in the field, en plein aire. C.D.'s paintings come alive to the viewer, as if the viewer were actually there.
