About Patrice Clarkson

Patrice Clarkson For many years after graduating from the Ontario College of Art my career was in Advertising. I was employed by publishers, printers, and ad agencies as well as being an in-house artist at a select set of businesses.

I enjoyed working as a designer and illustrator, but as my career advanced, drawing slowly faded from the forefront, my focus being a steady paycheque. Some employers really had no idea that I could paint or for that matter, even draw.

On vacation one summer, I decided to see if freelancing could be an option. Maybe get to do the kind of art I loved. I acquired a few projects, quit my full-time position and another phase of my life had begun. Slowly the work went from assembly and design to illustration, to commissioned pet portraits.
Once again I was drawing and painting animals as I had done as a child. The kind of work that's not really work but an extension of myself and a most rewarding experience. Ever changing, evolving into something of great love and fulfillment.

My Artist's Prayer:

Dear Lord, allow me to be
the artist I was born to be,
feel what I need
and see what I need
to do the work that I love.
