He creates original oil paintings of a wide variety of subjects ranging from classical subject matter such as fruit and eggshells to more modern subjects such as Mickey Mouse and Doritos.

He appeared on CBS News with Scott Pelle after a Chinese company sold forged copies of his paintings online. Afterward, the Huffington Post mentioned the story in an article stating that Clinton was part of a “sting operation.” “A Portrait of Doritos” the first painting in the snack-food series is in the private collection of actor Michael Rooker from Guardians Of The Galaxy and The Walking Dead.
