Gary has spent most of his life in Portland having migrated from Chicago to attend Reed College. He earned a degree in literature but found a career in woodworking more to his liking. His work has made its way into shows and galleries throughout the country including the Contemporary Crafts Gallery, Artquake in Portland and The Real Mother Goose. He participated in the Table Lamp and Chair Show series, had a piece in the Oregon Biennial at the Portland Art Museum, and was the recipient of an Oregon Arts Commission Crafts Fellowship. He has worked with clients for both private and public commissions including work for Temple Beth Israel, St. Juan Diego, the Oregon Forest Service, and the Oregon State Archives.
