Garry was born into a farming family in Narembeen, Western Australia.
He has always been interested in the significant sights and locations of Perth.
Over the years he has tried many different styles and approaches to his art and, like Monet, has tried to capture these locations in different weather conditions and at different times of the day. This has led to a very individual style, which is similar to Suerat the Post Impressionist Pointilist.
Lately his focus has shifted from buildings and locations to people and he is enjoying putting the human element into his recent paintings.
Garry has had successful exhibitions at Kidogo Art House in Fremantle and Gadfly Gallery when it was located in Nedlands.
Garry won the Rockingham Water Colour Prize in 2003 and 2012 and the Black Swan Heritage Prize with his painting of St. Georges Terrace entrance fascade of London Court.
