Artist Biography

 

 

Gary Lynn Roberts was raised in Texas and has been painting since the age of 14. He grew up in
an atmosphere permeated by art; his major influence being his father, noted Western artist Joe 
Rader Roberts. In addition to his father's training, he received one-on-one training from many of his 
father's friends such as G. Harvey and A.D. Greer. Gary has taken his training and molded it into his 
own style of painting, a mixture of realism and impressionism that captures the history of the Old 
West. Gary spent a lot of time working with horses and traveling to rodeos while he was growing up 
in Texas.  “I grew to know many of the great cowboys and their horses: their mannerisms, ideals, and 
character during my childhood. Those cowboys were incredibly hard-working men who truly took 
pride in what they did and in their love of this country. The significance of those experiences heavily 
affects the style and feeling of my paintings.”
