“Menagerie” is one of my very favorite pieces. It emanated from a dream that I had about animals, aliens and birds. Yeah, maybe I had one too many glasses of wine the night before, but the dream was quite vivid and fun. Translating the dream to canvas has allowed me to relive it on a regular basis. Who doesn’t love color, shapes and odd little figures?

    Garry Scott Wheeler is an award winning abstract acrylic artist, author and entrepreneur from the Gulf Coast of Florida. He has traveled to over 100 countries seeking inspiration for his paintings over the past 10 years.


    Fans of his work have told him that looking at his paintings is comparable to lying on their backs, looking up at the clouds and trying to interpret the shapes that they see. I don't know about you, but that sounds like a whole lot of fun to me!


    The heart and soul of his paintings emanates from vividly seeing colors and shapes in his daily life. Garry has been passionate about abstract art since he was a child. Most of his paintings attempt to capture a dream that he has had at some point in his past. Music plays a key role in conjuring up day dreams, which many times he even has a hard time understanding. Somehow, between his head, heart and hand, he reproduces these dreams on canvas for others to interpret with him.


    Of course, in every place he has traveled he also has been inspired by the art he has seen in galleries and museums including Milan, Florence, Naples and Rome. He especially enjoys the works of Wassily Kandinsky, Joan Miro, Alexander Calder and Jackson Pollock. His artwork is a reflection of his life’s journey, adventures and experiences and he is thrilled to be able to share it with you.
