About Me


Contact Me






Commissions are a blend of the patrons idea with the vision and skill of the artist. It is often a personal process. At the Artworks that process begins with a personal response to your inquiry by David Clarke. Visit the Contact Me page for your preferred method of communication.

Have as much information about your needs ready as you can including dimensions, site photos, sketches, etc. . This will make our initial dialogue  comfortable and productive.

The information and discussion will be used to create a proposal with scheduling, prices, and drawings, With review and approval, return the signed proposal with a deposit of 1/2 of the total to initiate our agreement.

It is my goal satisfy every patron and I am proud of the reputation I have developed over the decades.

I thrive on a challenge and aspire to create works of art that are both engaging and functional.

Requests for site-specific and public works of art are warmly welcome.
