Gary was born in Fargo, North Dakota, and grew up in Aspen and Denver, Colorado. His interest in art began as a very young child when a bout of rheumatic fever gave him the opportunity to spend most of first and second grade staying home from school and drawing. As a teenager, Gary improved his health when he began competitive swimming.  He spent his twenties as an enthusiastic swim coach and studying art in college. Later, he was able to combine both of his loves when he moved to the western slope of Colorado and joined the school district, teaching art and coaching swimming. Raising a family, teaching, coaching and running, Gary still found time to pursue his own art. He completed his master’s degree in visual art in 1993, and created a number of participation art pieces that were recognized state wide. Since 2010, he has been able to devote himself to art.
