Justin Gaffrey Gallery
Description2005 “Artist of the Year,” Justin Gaffrey taught himself how to paint by exploring new techniques utilized by some of his favored artists including Van Gogh and Monet. By combining some of these methods with his own unique style, Gaffrey has created his own artistic voice. His immersion in creative thought and depth of imagination has allowed Gaffrey to create emotional, brilliant works as individual as his surroundings. Justin Gaffrey’s works can be viewed at the Gaffrey Art Gallery, located in Blue Mountain Beach.
