Gary McCauley – Wonderful and infinite thing called Art

” I guess you could say I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil or crayon. My earliest memories are of drawing cars with my cousins on the floor of my grandparents den. They were big boxy things with huge wheels in the back and mufflers the size of smokestacks streaming down the side. As I got older I began watching my Mom draw. She liked to draw from those great records of the 60’s and 70’s with all that album art. She would give me a piece of paper and a pencil and I would try to draw what she was drawing and would usually end up frustrated because it didn’t look anywhere near as good as hers did. She would just tell me to keep trying and eventually I would get it. I’m still trying and I still haven’t gotten it. But somewhere along the way I did develop a love of drawing. Eventually, I ended up at the Creative Circus where I studied Illustration with two great teachers: Mark Braught and Rob Lawton.

After school I spent a lot of time making up for my lack of exposure to Art by immersing myself in any and everything about Art that I could. I changed my style with every book I read and came to realize just how wonderful and infinite this thing called Art was. Along the way I got married to beautiful lady named Brandy, had two kids, well my wife had two kids, went through several jobs, got an agent who helps me get the occasional illustration gig, and started exhibiting my work in Galleries.

My work has changed a lot over time and I hope it continues to grow. I believe I have found a method or style or what have you that lets me say something about myself in each painting that I do.”
