P. Gatchell Beckley was raised in the area of Ohio known as The Tri-State Area.
Tuscarawas, Harrison and Carroll counties offered the inspiration needed to spark
the desire to draw and paint.
As a youngster in biology class drawing anatomically correct small animals on notebook
paper, P. Gatchell Beckley’s art evolved into detailed drawings on envelopes, folk
art painting on wood, fabric painting and eventually oil painting on canvas.
P. Gatchell Beckley's art has been on display at public and private locations throughout
Texas, Ohio, Arizona, Nevada, South Dakota and Florida.
