American Contemporary

Classical realist painter Lonni Clarke, known for her portraiture, paintings of horses, and still life, grew up in suburban California. Trips to European museums as a teenager greatly influenced her artistic ambitions and also her very classical ideals and modes of expression. After earning a degree in History from UCLA and a degree in Fashion Design from Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, Lonni worked briefly in the fashion industry as a designer, but felt moved to begin a gradual drift into illustration and finally fine art, aided by classes at the Art Center College of Design.

After having been the archetypal horse obsessed adolescent girl, Lonni returned to the subject of horses when she began to paint in oils. Not coincidentally, she lived just minutes from Santa Anita Park, one of the world’s premier racetracks and great equine spectacles. The pageantry of sleek horses and raucously colored racing silks filled her canvases. After moving to rural Utah she began painting the pastoral scenes around her and as well as commissioned portraits for clients around the US. Lonni painted a number of portraits, still lifes, and equine paintings for Polo/Ralph Lauren corporate offices and flagship stores, and for Polo print ads.

Lonni Clarke is presently represented by the Chisholm Gallery in Wellington, Florida and the Fibonacci Gallery in Saint George, Utah.  Her commissioned portraits grace many private collections.
