C. D. Clarke has maintained a lifelong, continuous global sporting and painting tour—traveling the world with clients, friends, and alone to fish, hunt, and paint in destinations the rest of us dream about: Alaska, the Bahamas, Britain’s chalk streams, Scotland, the Seychelles, Tierra del Fuego, the Andes, Labrador, Cuba, British Columbia, Iceland, and all over the U.S. from Georgia to Montana and Texas to New England.
His work has been shown in the most prestigious galleries, shows, and museums, including the American Museum of Fly Fishing, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Birds in Art Show, the Thomasville Wildlife Arts Festival (for twenty-three years), the Easton Waterfowl Festival, and the National Sporting Library and Museum.
Clarke’s paintings hang in countless private collections and are featured on the pages and on the covers of Gray’s Sporting Journal, Sporting Classics, Shooting Sportsman, Field & Stream, and many others. He regularly contributes pieces to a wide variety of conservation initiatives and is on the board of the Atlantic Salmon Federation. He lives in Oldwick, New Jersey.
