Through renderings of botanical, ancient historical monuments, landscapes, seascapes, animals, and nature. Clyde attempts to capture a visual story of the moment. Clyde works in watercolor, acrylic, oil paint, and occasionally, pen and ink, charcoal using a tight, illustrative hand.
Clyde has always been creative and a visual artist. But life and adulthood interrupted a promising potential professional career in art. Clyde has said he has many fond memories of sketching, doodling, and the occasional painting for his two daughters when they were very little. Now years later, Clyde has been motivated by their love, and encouragement as beautiful young adults urging him to pursue a professional art career. With recent visual issues, Clyde says “I’ll continue to create art if I go completely blind. Nothing will stop me!”
As a visual artist utilizing various mediums and working in a representational style. Clyde is self-taught, the emphasis is not so much on rendering, but focused on the visualization of the emotion and feeling of the moment.

Clyde says, “if my artwork can put a twinkle in the eye and place a smile on the face of a stranger. Then I am a successful working professional artist.” Clyde truly believes he is blessed with the divine gift of helping someone take a break from their hurried troubled day. To give the world beauty is an awesome and humbling power indeed!
