Gerald has lived in the Western United States his entire life; from a Colorado farm to the plains of Nebraska, onto the mountains of Montana, and settling in Texas in 1982.
He credits his family for instilling in his life an appreciation for the beauty of nature, and love for horses that he still enjoys today.
Gerald studied architecture before switching to art at the University of Nebraska. His trade became carpentry but art always remained part of his life. After caring for his in-laws for eight years, he retired in 2002 to pursue a career as an artist. His art depicts the love and passion of the Old West, bringing the freedom and spirit of those times alive in powerful images.
Gerald has received several Lone Star Art Guild Show awards. He has exhibited at Legal Eagles Gallery in Tomball, Texas; the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo; Rosequist Galleries in Tucson, Arizona; Palos Verdes in Hempstead, Texas; Cody Country Art League in Cody, Wyoming; annual Nebraska Cattlemen’s Ball; the annual Denver Colorado Stock Show; and the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada.
