GJ Gillespie is a collage artist living in a 1928 Tudor Revival farmhouse overlooking Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island (north of Seattle). In addition to natural beauty, he is inspired by art history -- especially mid century abstract expressionism. The “Northwest Mystics” who produced haunting images from this region 60 years ago are favorites.
Winner of 20 awards, his art has appeared in 60 shows and numerous publications.
When he is not making art, he runs his company Leda Art Supply selling the sketchbook that he designed.
