About Gary

Gary Bell AM


As a child growing up in a small country town I developed a passion for photography and art focused on the unique heritage, wildlife and lifestyle of Australia.

I undertook early studies with a view to a career in graphic art, but circumstances resulted in me undertaking a career in communications and the military, while maintaining a strong interest in photographing and painting 'all things Australian'. In retirement, I now pursue my art and photography full-time. In recent years I have concentrated more on the environment and the very special wildlife that call it 'home'. I have also extended my interests more to international heritage themes as well as indulging more in photography, but the mind keeps turning back to painting.

My art is in private collections in America, Canada, Mexico, Singapore, Malaysia, United Kingdom and New Zealand as well as Australia.

I have had three sketchbooks published on historic Australian 'Pubs' and my art is featured in six other publications and a number of Australian calendars.
