Clayton Harper studied Fine Art, Art History and Art Education at the University of Denver and Southern Illinois University. After a marketing career in book publishing, he has returned to art making with an emphasis on landscape painting in watercolor. He works both in studio and en plein air. His deep bonds to nature were formed during a youth spent in Australia and travels all over the world have strongly influenced his interest in the varieties of landscape that people call home. The challenges of watercolor - with it’s unforgiving, technique-dependent mysteries and it’s unique ability to capture light - are well-suited to his vision.
