Bruce Hamilton Clark (or Bruce Michael Clark, or simply Bruce Clark) was born in London in 1937. He studied painting and sculpture at one of the most famous of English Art Schools, the Bath Academy of Art at Corsham. He gained his initial qualification there in 1960. He also holds a Diploma in Art Education and was later awarded a Master of Arts degree by the University of Kent. Having held several teaching and lecturing posts from 1960 onwards he decided in 1996 to paint full-time. Throughout the past five decades his work has been widely shown in the U.K., France and North America. He has been included in publications such as 'Who's Who in Art', the 'Dictionary of International Biography' and 'Artists in Britain since 1945', and has written a number of research papers.

Throughout his long painting career Bruce Clark has constantly experimented within a wide range of styles and techniques, both abstract and figurative. A common thread in much of the work has been a strong landscape element, the favoured locations both real and imagined often being lonely, desolate and mysterious places. Other themes have been inspired by literature, mythology, genealogy, architecture and also the simple geometry to be found within a wide variety of artefacts.
