Gary has been a professional artist for over 35 years. He is an Associate Member of the Oil Painters of America, an Associate Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, and an Elected Member of the Society of Canadian Artists.
It is important to Gary to have a strong sense of a light source and a feeling of air in his paintings to give a real visual feeling of the third dimension. Subject matter varies greatly, however he particularly enjoys painting florals. The landscapes are a result of many hours on horseback with his wife in a wide variety of terrain - mostly the high country to record scenes off the beaten path few people will have the opportunity to.
