Who Are Monika Clarke Family Members?
Monika Clarke hailed from Melbourne, Australia but was born in Swan Hill, Victoria. She has only introduced a few family members that include her parents, and her mother who is named Dolores Clarke. “I grew up in Swan Hill riding dirt bikes so this all feels pretty natural,” she told Herald Sun.
On their 30th wedding anniversary (February 2015), Monika wished her parents, a “Happy 30th Wedding Anniversary to the most amazing people I know! You better not forget Dad!! 🙊.”
Monika described her upbringing as “I am a country girl that moved to the city when I was 17 and have been there ever since.” She was raised in a Christian Family home as the youngest of 4.
Her parents were appreciative of whatever they had despite the fact that her family was quite poor and they lived in a ghetto. She spent many years growing up on a stone fruit farm, harvesting and packing fruit while working long hours. These events helped shape Monika into the endearing, genuine, and enjoyable person she is today.
Growing up, Monika was a tomboy. She never considered wearing gowns or makeup.
Monika still enjoys playing sports. She has experience in sprinting and has played soccer, basketball, netball, and futsal.
Monika was signed to Chadwick Models at 15 but didn’t really start to model until she moved to Melbourne at 17. One of the top modeling and talent agencies in the world, Wilhelmina, is the agency that represents Monika.
Monika’s first job was for a Suzuki Swift TVC. Since then she has worked for labels such as; Everlast, Diana Ferrari, Connie Simonetti, Wrangler, Kookai, Roger David, Brooks, and Chrysler.
Monika also owns My Verite a brand of jewelry. According to the information on her IG bio, the business produces “fine jewelry made from natural, high-quality gems from the mines of Zambia.” On Fifth Avenue in New York City, My Verite sells classy bracelets, rings, earrings, and pendants. On the business website, a photograph of Monika is used to promote My Verite’s goods.
Meet Robert Clarke, Monika Clarke Father
Australian model Monika Clarke’s father is called Robert Clarke.
On Father’s Day 2018, Monika wished her dad with a lengthy post. She wrote, “Although it’s not #FathersDay back home in Aus until later in the year, it’s my first Fathers Day here in the US. And it’s a day I wish I could spend with my Daddio. In 1991 I was born on Father’s Day. I guess Mum got sick of buying you new socks! I’m the daughter of a Preacher Man, a Milk Delivery Man, a man who set an example of how a man should love a woman. A simple man who works hours I could never even imagine working, all for his family.”
Monika added, “I got my stubbornness from you and the ability to talk about one topic for hours on end. You’ve given me strength in life and tough skin. You have pushed me to continue and work harder all those times I wanted to give up. In not having much you continue to give so much to others, even if it’s the shirt off your own back.”
She concluded, “But most of all, the love you have and show for my mother, has been the biggest imprint in my life. You live by example and I am truly blessed to call you Dad. And although I may only get to see you once in a while, you’re always a voice inside of my head, guiding me through this journey called life.”
Robert reportedly worked at Mallee Milk Delivery and preached at church.
