About Gordon Sellen

Born in the Yukon Territory, back when car's had wooden wheels. Currently resides in Collingwood Ontario Canada.
Painter, Glass Artist, and Retired Award Winning Pastry Chef. Gordon's exploration of art and many of it's mediums has been a lifelong pursuit.
Before painting became his focus, Gordon spent many years as a glass blower. He created thousands of pieces of hand blown art glass.
Also a very accomplished stained glass artist, Gordon created windows for many churches, public and private commissions.

Gordons Painting process can best be described as madly off in all directions. However after painting pretty much nonstop for 9 years there seem's to be a pattern and his paintings can be grouped into one of many an on going series.

Gordon finds inspiration around him everywhere and although Abstract Expressionism is a favourite, he has explored landscapes, figurative work and even pop art.
