Raquel Clarke

Born 1989 in Auckland, New Zealand. I am very blessed to have been born into a family with a successful artistic heritage. Since I am a third generation artist, I have grown up being thoroughly immersed in the world of art since childhood. I have had the privilege of studying fine art and it's creation from the atelier. Ivan Clarke is a renowned New Zealand artist, and being his apprentice has been an invaluable part of my artistic studies. I often find myself in awe of nature and the diverse colours that can be found therein - I feel that nothing can compare to the beauty of nature that is left completely unspoiled. I specialize in large, thickly textured, almost sculptural works, and I have a great appreciation for rich colour palettes and ambient light. I am very grateful to be a part of the Queenstown Arts Centre, and the supportive creative environment that it fosters. Most days I can be found painting at studio 5, and I enjoy meeting people, so please feel free to come in and say hello
