MICHAEL G CLARK PAI RSW

Edinburgh College of Art, 1979-83 BA (Hons) After graduating in 1983 his love of film led to him working with BBC Scotland in Glasgow. He moved to London in 1989 to work as an Art Director. His work often celebrates his enduring relationship with France and Italy. He paints from a studio at the top of the family home, which Karen describes, “as the best room in the house”.
