Gary Morrow was born in 1974 in Glasgow. In 2008 he left a successful career in multimedia design and development to pursue a lifelong passion for painting. His interest in traditional painting methods led to extensive study of the work of past masters - from the layered approach of Italian masters such as Caravaggio and Titian to the more direct work of late 19th and early 20th century artists. He is particularly inspired by the naturalistic work of the Glasgow Boys especially that of George Henry and William Guthrie. His aim is to create work that reflects the beauty of our surroundings in a way that is both representational and expressive.
