Greg enjoys painting a variety of subjects and themes, and is always finding new ways to express his romantic leanings. He received his Associate of Fine Arts Degree in 1976 from Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho. He went on to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. In 1982 he received a Master of Fine Arts Degree from Utah State University in Logan, Utah.
Greg has traveled extensively in Europe for the past ten years, painting “Plein Air” in Paris as well as in the European country side, including the Italian and French Rivieras, Venice and Rome, Madrid and Barcelona, Budapest, Strassborg, England, Wales and Prague. He uses historical books and images to place the streets and figures in the 18th century, adding a sense of romance and history.
Gregory shows a collection of scenes from around the world that capture the light and create an effect that feels as if the image is changing right before your eyes as the natural light changes in your home throughout the day. His life long love for nature and travel has drove him to master the art of light.
A unique form of impressionism can be seen in Greg’s style. Though Greg’s paintings appear to be quite detailed, a closer look will reveal expressive brush work and charming impressionistic textures.
