Neil Clarke was born in the Ashbourne area and studied at Derby and Norwich before returning to the area to work as a self-employed artist/craftsman. He specialises in landscapes and architectural work using mainly watercolour but also a range of other media. His work is mainly traditional in style but he has produced some terrific reflections paintings which take well known scenes and abstract them.
As well as painting he is a talented furniture designer and craftsman. He produces both art and furniture to commission but also has items for sale via his website http://www.neil-a-clarke-artist.co.uk/index.htm and his work is regularly on display in the Opus Gallery
