About Gary Symington

Learn more about Gary Symington from Meadow Vista, CA - United States.








Gary has been a full-time illustrator and graphic designer for over 35 years, but his real passion has always been painting in oils on canvas. His illustration clients have included L.L. Bean, Windows magazine and McDonalds. His commercial work has been shown with the Society of Illustrators and in the Strathmore Paper Graphics Gallery. Gary received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Syracuse University, and studied at Sir John Cass School of Art in London, England. After primarily painting landscapes for many years, his most recent work reflects his interest in trains, with particular attention paid to the quality of the surface textures and discolorations of metal on the engines. Gary was raised in New Hampshire and took his painting lesson from a well-known art teacher at age twelve. When he was thirteen he sold a painting to Academy Award winning actress Myrna Loy, who was in the area performing summer theater. When not creating artwork, he enjoys his friends and family, and plays drums and vibes in a successful Sacramento based tribute band. He is married and has two children, two dogs and two cats, and no goldfish.

Gary Symington joined Fine Art America on July 22nd, 2008.
