Gary Walton Profile

gary walton portrait_01

Gary was born in Worcester in 1962. Although he demonstrated a talent for art from an early age, he never considered pursuing a full time career as an artist, instead moving through the school system and into a conventional job. He always loved to paint however and spent much of his spare time painting landscapes – real or imagined.

After receiving continual encouragement from his wife, Gary decided to take his art more seriously and turned semi-professional while continuing to work part time as a back up. For three years he painted in his studio and sold his artwork to both private collectors and a variety of retail outlets. During this time he gradually came to realise that for him to become a full time artist would be a dream come true.

Gary’s latest distinctive watercolours concentrate on a mixture of buildings and coastal scenes. Although exquisitely observed they are painted in a stylised manner, giving them a slight but intriguing air of fantasy.

He loves to paint landscapes which were originally inspired by Salvadour Dali.
‘He was the artist to give me the inspiration to create my own unique style.’

His pictures emanate a magical quality: an ethereal contrast of reality and dreamlike visions.

‘I am very passionate with everything I paint and I will always strive to achieve producing a unique range of paintings for all to love.
