Gary Blake

Gary has been working with acrylics since 2015 and is passionate about this art form.
His journey began following a vacation in Newfoundland after which his wife encouraged him to attempt painting from it’s beautiful vistas. Initially frustrated with the fast-drying medium, he was fortunate enough to connect with Charles Spratt who has mentored him along the way and encouraged him as a plein air artist.
Educated in Guelph in Marine Biology and completeing Medical School at the University of Western Ontario, Gary practised Family Medicine for almost 40 years in Kemptville. Retirement has afforded him the opportunity to reconnect with nature and attempt to capture the beauty of its light and shadows.
