Gary Sams *NEW*

Artist: Gary Sams - Original Paintings:-

Gary Sams, Artist At The Acorn Gallery, Pocklington

Gary was born in Surrey and moved further South to Poole Dorset when he was 5 years old.

His earliest memories of art were drawing dinosaurs and constantly making marks and scribbling on whatever he could find, which led his parents to buying him a set of paints, and he never looked back. So, crayons, chalk etc developed into pastels, poster paints, then oils, and then eventually watercolour.

When he turned 19, he attended the Arts Institute in Bournemouth from 1994-97 where he studied Illustration. There Gary learned a variety of techniques and mediums, and gained experience, including 3 years of life drawing which he very much enjoyed. 

"My constant source of inspiration is light, mood and atmosphere. My main objective is to capture something profound and evoking. Subjects like seascapes, boats, cityscapes and portraits all have a unique character, brought to life by mood. I aim to capture these subjects with a loose impressionistic feel that is more thought provoking than a photograph. Of course colour plays a big part in my paintings capturing different times of the day, creating a dramatic or calm feel. Water, reflections, light and shadow help tie all these elements together" Gary now lives and paints in Alicante, Spain.
