CLINTON IN HIS OWN WORDS ...
“I was into art as far back as 3 or 4 years of age, but it wasn’t until my late 20s after attending a life-changing seminar in Alaska under the guidance of world-renowned wildlife artists John Seerey-Lester, Alan Hunt and Morten Solberg that I began to approach painting seriously.
My paintings are highly detailed and realistic, and reflect the strong influence nature has always had on my life. Fishing, canoeing, portaging and camping have been my hobbies since I was a child, with each excursion leaving fond and powerful memories etched into my soul. When I’m not painting in my studio, I spend my time travelling the globe gathering firsthand research of all species of wildlife in their natural habitats.
My favourite research expeditions (so far) include Alaska, British Columbia, Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories, Colombia, St. Lucia, Costa Rica and Yellowstone National Park. My winter trip to Yellowstone in 2009 rewarded me with many incredible moments. The geothermal activity throughout the park, the open rivers and rugged mountains, the mists and ice effects on the trees, the semi-desert-like vegetation and, of course, the large numbers of wildlife at every turn provided a truly once in a lifetime experience. On the opposite side of the weather spectrum, my research expedition in 2010 to the Osa Peninsula at the southernmost tip of Costa Rica (considered one of the most bio-intense places on earth) blessed me with many truly awesome and unforgettable moments. This same was true for my fall 2011 trip to coastal British Columbia near the Great Bear Rainforest. Currently, I am very anxiously looking forward to my research expedition this July to South Africa and Botswana, from which I plan to create a whole new body of work depicting the majesty of Africa’s Big 5 animals and the unmistakable beauty of the African landscape.
Over the years, many people have asked me why I paint. I paint as a visual expression of my passion and appreciation for wildlife and nature. I believe we are all stewards of nature, and my goal is to help protect and preserve our natural environment by painting images of its unique creatures and untouched landscapes so that when viewed, they not only tell a story, but also elicit a feeling.”
