Clive Forward was born in Somerset, but was raised in Dorset where he still lives.

Having been born with health problems, he was unable to take part in sporting activities so when he attended a local secondary-school it was agreed that perhaps he would like to take more lessons in art instead of just sitting watching whilst others took part in the sports.

As art was something that he always enjoyed he had no second thought about the offer. After leaving school a few years went past and he had the opportunity to attend Art College which he did for a year, on a Foundation Course. Having learnt the technique of Pen and Ink drawing, he started to attend Arts & Crafts fairs (which he still does) firstly only with greetings cards which he had designed.

After a little whilst we was asked by a local family if it was possible to draw a picture of the local church where their daughter was due to get married, and as this had leant itself to his Pen & Ink technique it is something he still does as historical buildings including Churches work well in Black and White, to date he has drawn over 170 churches from different parts of the country, Some have been reproduced in a book entitled 'A selection of Parish Churches' by Jack-Skelton Wallace, in 2004.

Clive also works in watercolour which he uses in conjunction with pen and ink work, on various sujects including Wildlife & Pet portraits, and also pictures of Vintage & Classic Vehicles.
