Gary Lyons is a 20 years experienced graphic designer whom has returned to his original passion for drawing and painting. Gary started drawing right from the minute he could and showed 'natural' ability at a very early age. He credits his artistic path to few but critical people in his life but none more that his high school teacher, mentor and friend to this day, Marilyn Hilsden 'she was the one who lit the flame and got me where I am today'. After attending Capilano College in Vancouver Canada for graphic design and illustration he has toiled in print shops, sign making shops and some years doing freelance since the early 90's. After moving to the US to be with his new wife it has been challenging to find a place where he could express himself creatively once again. With the support of his incredibly talented wife Yolande and encouragement from family and friends he has decided to choose painting as his path once again.
Gary paints digitally using the latest in painting/rendering software. His painting are done in a traditional sense blocking and layering they are not done as a Photoshop effect. Each painting takes a couple of days to create and final sizes can be printed at a large scale.
