Classically trained and a professional illustrator, with over forty years’ experience, Jerry Gadd is internationally recognized for his artwork. After studying in Baltimore at the Le Millet School and the Maryland Institute, Gadd worked with nationally known watercolorists Claude Croney and John Pellew. While Croney and Pellew were known for representational approaches to watercolors, Gadd’s work in oils reflects those approaches and represents both genres of art.
“I paint as I see things in a representational or realistic manner. The light source is the influencing factor in the painting. I have won awards and ribbons in local and national art competitions and art publications. The publications include International Artist, Artist's, Southwest Art, and Circle Spotlight Contemporary Art Magazine's. My interest includes: landscape, still life, floral, and portrait or figure work in both oil and watercolor. I like the old masters approach as well as the today's contemporary artwork.”
