Niblett was born and raised in Carlsbad, New Mexico. After graduation,
he went on to California, where he attended the Art Center School
of Design. He spent eight years with the Hanna-Barbera studios
as a background artist, but continued to develop his own style.
He met Monika while working for the studios and they were married
in 1970. In 1973, Gary left commercial art to focus exclusively
on Western art, and three years later was voted into the Cowboy
Artists of America. He returned to New Mexico, where his work
continued to gain national recognition.
His work has been exhibited all over the world,
including the Grand Palais, France and the Amerika Hass Berlin,
Germany. He has also exhibited in Moscow, Taiwan, Beijing, and
at the prestigious Royal Watercolor Society in London. Niblett's
work has been included in publications such as the International
Fine Art Collector, Time, Saturday Review and New Mexico Magazine.
In 1990, he was honored as the "Distinguished Calendar
Artist" for New Mexico Magazine, and a book titled Gary
Niblett-A New Look at the Old West was released. He has been
given the honor of having a large oil hanging in the state capitol
building in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
He works mostly in oil, but says he is "comfortable
in watercolor." Niblett's art demands that we look into
the reveries and still moments of the human spirit where the
heart lives. His versatile work demonstrates the human values
which are brought to bear in living, not only in the American
West, but in the world.
He and Monika have lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico in their adobe-style
home since 1980.
