Annie and Justin Gerard, also known under their joined name Gallery Gerard, are an artist duo based in Northern Georgia. Both inspired by fantastic lore, from J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis’s work to folklore and mythology, the couple created a fantastic portfolio filled with epic, fantastic paintings. Annie’s work has a mythical touch, portraying Goddesses and mythic heroines. Annie adores 18th century Rococo painters, whose romantic works have a big influence on her soft and feminine style.
We have to go a bit further back in time for Justin’s favorite artist movement: the illustrators of the Golden Age. Justin studies these illustrators thoroughly, using their characteristic portrayal of light and shadow in all his paintings and illustrations. If you’re a Tolkien fan you might be excited to see work inspired by The Hobbit and The Silmarillion pop up below!
