Summary

Gary was born and raised in Stepney in London's East End; his family history can be traced back for at least 200 hundred years in London, probably longer. In each piece of work he tries to reflect up to 2000 years of London history; from Roman occupation through the great plagues and fires that have blighted London, through empire building and brisk commerce, right up to the present day. Each piece is unique and always has a story to tell. Over the past several years Gary has had his work exhibited both in London and in New York City, where he spent a number of years working on urban art projects as well as exploring the less-well-trodden city parks in search of American and British Revolutionary artifacts.

Work History

Artist

ThamesArt

After working at the United Nations for a number of years I decided to spend more time following my passion for art and antiques and started a business based in NYC. This allowed me more time to travel the United States looking for items of interest, as well as giving me the chance to see America through some of the objects that define its past.

In 2004, after 20 years of living in America, I decided with my family to come home to England. In that time I have been working on my art as well as going back to school, defining what the next 20 years might bring.
