RoryClarkeArt's Shop Announcement

My name is Rory Clarke. I am an Irish artist. I am painting all my life and enjoying every minute. I hope you enjoy my paintings. Please feel free to leave a comment. I would love to hear from people with ideas for paintings or if anyone has any questions.

Painting started at a young age for me. My mother had a lot to do with that. She saw talent somewhere along the line, and would enter me into Community Games Art competitions. This competition was a national competition in Ireland. Each entrant would have to do a drawing or painting in a room full of other entrants in under three hours. The pressure was massive. Especially when you were 12 years old.

Anyway, I managed to win two gold medals at National level at 12 and 16 years of age. Looking back on it now, I believe those days were very beneficial to my development as an artist today. Since then I has continued to paint from a number of different subject, including landscape, seascape, portraits, wildlife and cartoons.

I work from a vast range of subjects and styles. I believe this is what makes art so interesting and I see every painting as a fresh approach.

If you don't see something you like in my shop, and have something you would like done. I will happily do commisions. Get in touch ! :) roryclarkeart [!at]
