Orange Park, FL


Over the past few years Gary has become known as a "process" artist and not the typical "results oriented" artist. "As a process artist, I am constantly stimulated by the never ending variety of shapes and colors that surround us all. I attempt to interpret with expression and meaning combining form with color relationships with bold values. I feel compelled to express thoughts and emotions with strong and often stylized shapes. As long as there is a burning desire to create and express within me, I will always have something personal to offer others in art. My art philosophy today is; there are no rules, and if someone claims there are, break them! Don't try to think outside the box, understand that there is no box!
In the last 20 years Gary has studied under a variety of accomplished artist/instructors from Dutch abstract on the island of Saba, N.A., impressionists of Saint Augustine, Jacksonville, FL., and most recently he has been studying the work of Jonas Gerard in Asheville, NC. Jonas has a philosophy of; paint fast so you don't have time to think and allow doubt to enter the process.
Over the ensuing years Gary has been blessed with winning several first place and best of show awards for works in watercolor and acrylic and has sold his work all over the United States.
Recently Gary has offered his artistic array of values through photograph artwork; "Photography allows me an opportunity to capture God and man's creations instantaneously. I try to incorporate my painting thoughts into photography and look for things of shape, color, and even no color." Please enjoy the photography of Gary.
