Gary Lynn Roberts, being a story-teller, welcomes viewers into his canvases. His love of horses, rodeo, and the beautiful landscape in which he resides has helped him as a Western artist to develop a style of realism and impressionism. Carrying on the traditions of painting in oils, Roberts is a third-generation artist, his major influence being his father, noted Western artist Joe Rader Roberts.
Roberts started winning awards at the tender age of fourteen with a piece at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Over the years, his talent has won him Best of Show and People’s Choice Award on several occasions. He received the Honorary Chairman Award and Best of Show Award for the same painting at the C. M. Russell Museum, a rare accomplishment. Roberts is also a member of the C. M. Russell Skull Society of Artists. His paintings have graced the cover of several magazines and hang in some of the most prestigious collections. Roberts currently resides in Hamilton, Montana, with his wife Nancy and their two children, Mary and Anna.
