About the Artist

My name is John Clarke. I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I graduated from the Art Institute of Boston/ Lesley University in 1991 with a BFA.

About the Artist

My name is John Clarke. I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. I graduated from the Art Institute of Boston/ Lesley University in 1991 with a BFA. My focus upon graduating was illustration and over the years I worked as a freelancer for clients that varied from the ASPCA to Scholastic. For the past decade my wife and I have lived in Salem Massachusetts and I think the spooky vibe of the city in the Fall brought out my love of all things Halloween and Monster related that had been dormant in me from my childhood.

I try to invoke with my personal work something spooky but fun, I have shown and sold my work thru various group and solo shows over the years since graduating. The trick is to let your imagination go where it wants to, My influences are all over the place from Painting to Pop Culture. The most important thing of course is to enjoy making the art and hopefully that feeling comes thru for the viewer.
