Jeff Clarke was born in Jackson, MS in 1966. Although Jeff considers himself a self taught artist there are two people that he gives much credit too for influencing his development as an artist; his mother, who was an artist, and Pat Bodnyk, a renowned artist in Ft. Worth, TX.

Jeff spent most of his early childhood drawing and painting as a hobby. In 2002 Jeff started painting again. The same year he studied under Pat Bodnyk at her studio in Fort Worth, Texas. During this time he discovered a hidden talent that has become his passion.

Jeff also enjoys teaching children and adults the techniques of his handbuilding. You can view some of the pieces that his students have completed by clicking on the following link...Student Art .
