I fell in love with oil painting at the age of 13, and the rest of my school years was spent honing my craft and the Art Room became my home. At 15 I was courted by the prestigious Slade School and the Cardiff School of Art but I eventually dropped out as I felt I wasn't being given the freedom to paint.
Having spent some time in London as a photographer, I returned to painting on many occasions but life and love sidetracked me in my pursuit of oil painting as a vocation.
I moved to Brisbane in 1999, but it wasn't until I suffered a serious back injury in 2017 and having to give up my business, that I found myself needing to start afresh, and once again it was to painting I returned to. Roger Clarke Art was launched in November 2018 and having sold well over 60 paintings in Brisbane, Sydney, the UK and USA, I am becoming further established with both corporate and private commissions and sales. I am the resident artist at Brisbane's New Farm Antique Centre where I paint, exhibit and sell my work to a rapidly increasing client base.
I truly feel that the time is right and I'm finally doing what I should be doing. It has been a very long and winding road but finally I am here creating atmospheric artworks in paint.
