Greg was born and grew up in Dundee, Scotland; he is a self taught artist and from an early age he had a passion for drawing painting and craft like disciplines.
His working career began in the RAF where he served for six years. After leaving the RAF he qualified as a Chartered Building Surveyor and worked in the construction industry until a few years ago. During this time he was always sketching, drawing and painting – exhibiting with local art clubs and attending college courses for life drawing and landscape painting.
From an early age Greg has been involved in the great outdoors as his leisure pursuits of cycling, hill walking and climbing have taken him all around Scotland and Europe. He’s frequently been in and part of “the picture” camping out seeing sunrises, sunsets, stormy and wintery weather. He closely observed the changes that took place across the landscape over such short time lapse periods and then worked to find ways to recreate the vistas he’d seen onto canvas.
Greg paints in a variety of mediums, predominantly in pastels and acrylics and is passionate with the "hands on" soft pastel painting technique which gives fine subtleties of transition in the depth of tone he looks for.
His work can currently be seen in the Holroyd (Ballachulish), MacGregor Fine Arts (Glasgow), and Knock Castle (Crieff). He exhibits his work in other galleries from time to time and they include the Aberfeldy Gallery, The Airport Gallery (Edinburgh) Acorn Gallery (Perthshire) and Clam Jamfrie (Fort William).
Over the last few years he has also exhibited at a number of Mountain Film and Adventure Festivals including Dundee, Fort William, Aviemore and Braemar.
