Biography

Neville Clouten studied art at Sydney University with the late Lloyd Rees, one of Australia’s leading watercolor and oil painters. He received the Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Sydney and was immediately hired as researcher and official guide to the Sydney Opera House project. He later worked as an architect in Stockholm, Sweden and undertook research at the Ohio State University where he received the Master of Architecture degree. His research continued at Edinburgh University where he received a Ph.D. He has taught freehand drawing and design at several universities during his 35-year career as university professor and dean.

Neville has traveled extensively and has always carried a sketchbook to record landscapes, harbors and historic places in all continents except Antartica. From 1990 to 2004 he was dean of the College of Architecture and Design at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, Michigan. Neville is now Dean Emeritus and Professor Emeritus, and was honored in 2000 with the Michigan President’s Award of the American Institute of Architects.

Since retirement Neville has returned to the first love of watercolor painting, creative writing and travel. Some experiences are recorded in the 2004 book Academic Lite. In the Foreword, Harvard University’s Steve Oles, FAIA, describes Neville as having “a sense of perspective, a continuing sense of wonder, and most important, a pervasive and wry sense of humor.”

Neville Clouten’s watercolors begin as sketches on location and are completed plein air or in the studio. There is a freshness to the impressionist feeling of the watercolors which retain evidence of passion at the time of sketching with later reflection on the experience.

Retirement has given Neville the opportunity to continue his love for travel and painting by teaching watercolor workshops on cruise ships. After several years with ocean liners, including Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth 2 and Queen Mary 2, he has concentrated on European river cruises and in 2009 will present watercolor theme cruises for the ships of Vantage Deluxe World Travel.

As a resident of both the United States and Australia, Neville exhibits in juried art shows on both continents. His watercolors are in private collections and corporate offices.
