ARTIST John W. Clark
Mr. Clark had served in Southeast Asia with the U.S. Air Force as an aircraft mechanic and returned to his home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to study mechanical engineering at Marquette University. After two years of study, he felt drawn to his first love – art. As a result, he enrolled at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee and obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Master of Arts and Master of Fine Arts degree in drawing and painting. For forth five years, his efforts have been directed toward commissioned works for Astronomy magazine, NASA and the U.S. Air Force Art Program. Mr. Clark is a past President, an Artist Fellow, and Jo Kotula Chair of the American Society of Aviation Artists.
In recent years, he has expanded his oeuvre to include landscape, the figure and decorative motifs. Mr. Clark currently lives and works in Surprise, Arizona. Images of his artwork may be viewed on his website: www.johnwclarkart.com
“It is more interesting to try to realize one’s dreams on canvas than humbly to spend one’s efforts in trying to represent a jug and an apple. But until one can paint everyday realities, one has little chance with dreams.”
