Over twenty years  ago Gord Walker's lifelong love of cars, motorcycles and racing collided with a rediscovered interest in sketching and painting from his teenage years. The result was his first automobile painting. To his surprise, Gord won an award in the first national automotive art competition he entered.

Since then he's published illustrated articles, exhibited his art in galleries and at autoshows across Canada. His work has been featured in dozens of online and print publications and newspapers throughout North America. A collection of Gord's paintings of classic Jaguar  automobiles was on display at the Toronto launch of the 2003 Jaguar XJ sedan. His paintings have been commissioned by collectors in both Canada and the U.S.  In addition, Gord has exhibited his work at  the Concours d'Elegance of America as well as the Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance, a breathtaking venue on Georgian Bay north of Toronto, Ontario.

When Gord first attended the Cobble Beach Concours as a featured artist in 2015, he fell in love with the area. He now makes his home in nearby Thornbury on Georgian Bay. He has used the spectacular scenery of Georgian Bay and the Grey Highlands as a backdrop on some of his recent paintings.
