About the Artist

Introducing Gary

Gary Armer is a Lancashire based artist recognised for his accurate representational painting style and ability to capture intricate fine detail.

Specialising in portraiture, the majority of Gary’s works are realist fine art oil paintings on canvas created entirely from life or from a combination of studies and photographs taken during live sittings.


The painter names Herbert James Gunn, John Singer Sargent, George Romney and Henry Raeburn as inspirational artists. You can read more about the works that inspire him in the inspiration and news sections.


Gary works in his private art studio in the Lancashire countryside where he is happy to welcome clients by appointment.

Alternatively the artist will travel to a sitter’s home or place of work in order to complete a commission and is happy to travel both across the UK and internationally.

The artist can paint from photographs when a live sitting is not possible, such as posthumous portraits or paintings as a surprise gift.

“Well what can I say? It’s amazing. I haven’t been able to stop looking at it. I look back at my time in the forces with great pride and I believe the portrait captures that feeling of pride perfectly. It’s a work of art which will be treasured by my family and I hope will be around long after I’m not.”
