Gary Golio

Biography

Gary Golio has led many lives: visual artist, high-tension electrician, musician, clinical social worker & therapist, arts teacher, gallery director, and children’s book author. He enjoyed an early love of comic books (1950s DC, 1960s Marvel), and originally hoped to pattern his life after Leonardo DaVinci, Spider Man, and Doctor Strange. So he became an artist and author, and removes live spiders from his house when his wife asks him.

But seriously: each of Gary’s books highlights an artist/musician’s roots and influences, promoting the idea that artists are models of persistence and commitment, embodying values of imagination, hopefulness, and self-acceptance.
