About Clem Spencer
Clem Spencers early career as a draughtsman was followed by a lecturing post in naval architecture specialising in three dimensional geometry and perspective studies; always painting on a part time basis.
In the mid 1970’s Clem decided to become a professional artist, preparing for this by graduating at the Open University in 1977 having read art as part of his Ba degree course. He paints in oils and subjects include landscapes, seascapes, birds and flowers. His limited palette of complimentary colours and wet into wet technique without a medium enables him to achieve a lively and luminous paint surface with a pronounced three dimensional effect.
Clem was elected a member of the Society of Botanical Artists in 1987 and of the Society of Floral Painters in 1996. He has exhibited at the Mall and Westminster galleries in London and also in Sweden, Jersey and Mottisfont Abbey near Southampton with the Society of Floral Painters and is also sought after demonstrator.
