David Clode - Biography.
I like the following two quotes, which are seemingly contradictory:
"Painting is a science and should be pursued as an enquiry into the laws of nature". John Constable.
"I have a prediliction for painting that lends joyousness to a wall". Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
Since childhood, I have had a passionate interest in nature and art, and have been fortunate to experience some of the best things in nature, while living in South Africa, the UK, and now in tropical Cairns, Australia.
I have exhibited and sold paintings in various galleries in Melbourne and Cairns, and some of my photos and illustrations have been published in magazine articles I have written. I have also designed some camouflage patterns. Most of my paintings are in cafes and restaurants, because I like to bring art to people who might not otherwise be exposed to it
My qualifications are mainly in science, and my work mainly in horticulture, naturalist tour guiding and transport. I also do voluntary work researching and inventing cost effective techniques for reforestation, and increasing food production in developing countries. If you are interested in overseas aid, agroforestry, permaculture or gardening, please visit my site, Reforestation.me. If you are interested in Christian evangelism, please visit my site Tracts4free.WordPress.com, where you can also find some more of my photos, posters and paintings.
I hope that my work, paintings, and photos, will be a blessing to as many people as possible, all around the world.
Best wishes and God bless,
