Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, Gary started drawing as a child. He attended college on a tennis scholarship, and went on to earn multiple postgraduate degrees and become a university professor before retiring from academia to pursue his passion for painting.
Although he continues to consider Denver his home, Gary divides his time between Colorado and such diverse locations as Mexico, Nepal and Europe. He has earned acclaim as a mountain climber, author and public speaker. Art collectors prize both his landscapes and figurative work.
Gary makes his work available for galleries, private purchase, image reproduction, and commissions. He prefers commissions where the client wants the artist’s vision to influence the painting rather than the photographic reproduction of a scene or person.
