Gary Doll Artist Oil Painter Kelowna BC Canada

Return to Fine Art Bio Story

The aim...art that can be contemplated on, is visually saturating, promotes relaxation, contemplation, like sitting in the Musee de l'Organgerie' Paris, meditation on Claude's massive waterlilies.

 

The medium of oil paint, and the way the brush moves with an expression of creating something new, fresh, bright, colourful and spiritual.

 

Gary Doll, was born in Southampton, On,, which is in the area of the Bruce Peninsula near the Tom Thomson Art Gallery in Owen Sound, Canada

 

In 1970 Gary went on a cross-Canada trek to British Columbia with a group of friends in a VW bus.

Returning to Ontario in the mid-70's he started painting while residing near Algonquin National Park.

 

He was influenced by the same dynamic landscape that atrracted the Group of Seven six decades earlier.

 

The love of the B.C. mountains lured him back to paint British Columbia, residing in the West Kootenays on the Slocan Lake.

 

For the last 20 years, Gary and his wife Annette have travelled extensively in Europe, visitng extraordinary art galleries . The original works by the Renaissance and Impressionist master, have had a great influence on his artistic views and styles.

 

Throughout the years, many of his paintings have been shown and sold across Canada and the United States.. His art is also displayed in countries such as Israel, India, and Uganda.

 

At this time Gary works at his studio, located in Kelowna, Canada
