About the Artist

Within each portrait I strive to capture not just the sitter’s appearance but their personality, attributes and mannerisms that make them special.

Gary Armer - Artist

Gary Armer is a realist painter of portraits, places and still life who lives and works in rural Lancashire, North West England.

Specialising in portrait painting, the artist undertakes a variety of portrait commissions ranging from children, paintings of couples and family portraits through to formal commissions for weddings, the military and High Sheriffs.

Gary works mostly in artist’s oil on canvas and can paint highly detailed, layered academic portraits or looser, alla prima style paintings.

The artist enjoys painting portraits entirely from life in his private studio or via sittings at the subject’s home or place of work. Gary also takes on commissions working from photographs when a live sitting is not possible such as portraits as a surprise gift.

Within each painting the artist strives to capture not just the sitter’s appearance but their personality, attributes and mannerisms that make them special. Gary is passionate about portraiture and loves to create works for his clients that they and their families will treasure for years to come.

You can find out how to commission a portrait by the artist, see examples of recent portraits and find pricing information on the commission page.

 “…I’m absolutely delighted with the interpretation and feeling you have created in minute detail in the painting… the painting is going to be a wonderful memory of my year in office but it is also something we will enjoy for a long time to come for the workmanship and likeness it represents.”

Mr Sam Rayner, High Sheriff of Cumbria
