Garrick Tremain

Garrick Tremain lives in New Zealand’s Wakatipu Basin, where he shares life with
his wife Jill and their two cats Marco Stan Polo and Oliver R. Buckle. He is widely known as both a landscape painter and a political cartoonist, and not at all as a golfer. He succumbed to the intrigue of golf many years ago and perseveres with its challenges despite reason and advice. He finds it astonishing that it engenders such strong emotions in some people: watching him in action, grown men have been known to weep.
