About Gordy

I'm a life long photographer and artist located in Washington State. I live and work with Mount Rainier literally in my backyard ! I started taking photos in the 8th grade with a old Kodak Brownie Camera, provided by my grandma.  I graduated high school in Bend Oregon (class of 76) with a huge interest in art. I served in the US Army, in Germany continuing my studies and exploring European Art,courtesy of the US Army. In 2005 I received my BA/BFA from St Martins University, and soon found employment as a Art instructor with the Veterans Administration, and rewarded daily, working with our nations hero's. 

In 1981, I met my soulmate, my wife Julie. She has been by my side on this art journey and shares my passion, her work will be featured here,as well.
