Herbert Clarke Simpson was born at Casino in New South Wales in 1879, one of the seven children of Herbert Rennie and Lucy Ellen. Simpson was educated at the state school in Casino and worked for several years in the family grocery store before studying art under Godfrey Rivers at the Brisbane Technical College. He exhibited with the Queensland Art Society (later named the Royal Queensland Art Society) from 1899 to 1934. His productive career began in 1906 and lasted for some 50 years. Most are of beach settings but occasionally he ventured north to depict subjects such as Dayboro and the Glasshouse Mountains. The appeal of his watercolours remains constant in Queensland as evidenced by specialist collectors of his work.
