COASTAL ARTIST

GARY WALTON WAS BORN IN WORCESTER IN 1962. ALTHOUGH HE DEMONSTRATED A TALENT FOR ART FROM AN EARLY AGE, HE MOVED THROUGH THE SCHOOL SYSTEM AND INTO A CONVENTIONAL JOB BEFORE TAKING UP ART, FIRST AS A SEMI PROFESSIONAL AND THEN FULL TIME.

IN 2004 GARY GOT HIS BIG BREAK WHEN HE WON THE NEW ARTIST COMPETITION SPONSORED BY DEMONTFORT FINE ART AND WAS AWARDED A PUBLISHING CONTRACT. THIS GAVE HIM THE ENCOURAGEMENT HE NEEDED TO FULFIL HIS DREAM OF BECOMING A FULL TIME ARTIST. HE EXHIBITS IN GALLERIES THROUGHOUT THE UK.
