Gordon Sellen -Contemporary Canadian Artist

About me

Born in the Yukon Territory, back when car's had wooden wheels. Currently resides in Collingwood Ontario Canada. Painter, Glass Artist, and 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.


Somewhere along the way Gordon also became interested in the art of Pastry and Bread Baking. And to make a long story short he worked his way up to Pastry Chef  with Four Season Hotel's and The King Edward Hotel. A career spanning 35 year's and many awards for excellence.


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


Gordon finds inspiration around him everywhere and although Abstract Expressionism is a favorite, he has explored landscapes, figurative work and even Pop Art.
