The Birthplace of B.C. Gallery is now showing the great work of Larry Tillyer. A native British Columbian, born in Victoria, Larry grew up in Vancouver. After a successful career in music, playing with the likes of Bill Haley & the Comets, Ivory Joe Hunter, Earl Bostic, Tommy Chong and Gene Vincent, Larry started his journey as a self taught artist in 1987.

After music, painting took over and has been his prime interest. A landscape, figure, plein air and genre painter in the impressionist style, Larry’s paintings are powerful studies that feature brilliant, pure colour, strong linear strokes, and expert use of light. He is a Signature Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and an active member of the Richmond Artist Guild.
Tillyer’s paintings can be found at the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery in Fort Langley.
