As a painter and large-scale installation designer, Clay’s artwork can be found in public and private collections around the world. He designed the glass tile mosaic for the new Stocker AstroScience Center (Florida International University), as well as the glass tile floor mosaic at the entrance to the Imiloa Astronomy Center of Hawai’i.
Limited Editions of the original oil painting used for the design, ‘Voyage of the Navigator’, are owned by the estate of U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye, Medtronics founder, Dr. Earl Bakken, NASA, and the Japan Ministry of Astrophysics.
He is proud to call Newport home, living with his wife and two daughters. When he’s not painting or building canvasses, he is usually exploring the outdoors, finding inspiration in the ocean, the forests, and the colors of Newport’s skies.
