Bio: Award winning artist Gary Fournier’s art journey began in High School where he excelled in oils, watercolor and the potter’s wheel. College art was interrupted by Vietnam and 4 years of Naval service, including 2 years of duty in Vietnam. After Vietnam, he married, started a family, went to college, and began a very demanding 40+ year career in the environmental engineering industry working for several global engineering companies. Gary’s art provides an opportunity to express himself. After many years in all levels of management in the business world, being able to express himself offers a relief from the confines of organizational structure and peer pressure. His work allows observation of the natural world and to experiment with new media and subjects. Landscape, winter scenes, animals, boats, lakes & rivers, seascapes, still life and architecture are his typical subjects. Gary prefers impressionism but usually works in realism or a combination. His body of work dates to 1965 with an art major in High School. Gary studied art while attending Empire State University SUNY at Plattsburgh NY where his focus was art history, drawing and watercolor. Gary’s passion is motivated by a love of nature, color and composition and the creativity that comes from working with paint and canvas.
