About me

Gender MALE
Location Cornwall, Vermont, United States
Introduction Born and raised in western Michigan. He spent much of his childhood drawing pictures. His parents recognized his God-given talent and instilled in his young life the determination to teach himself. His appreciation for art strengthened as he matured. When he was thirteen years old, Greg received his first commissions for pen & ink technical drawings of houses, and the following year he collaborated with his younger brother, Ben, to illustrate his first book. In 2001, Greg moved to Vermont and was inspired by the rural beauty of that state. He began experimenting with watercolor and oil paints, and in autumn 2008 Greg completed his first landscape oil painting entitled "Summer Storm". One year later, in August 2009, Greg participated in the 24th Reflections on Basin Harbor Art Show, where his painting "The Lodge at Basin Harbor" was the 2009 choice for the Basin Harbor Club art collection. In 2010, Greg signed a royalty contract with Tate Publishing & Enterprises LLC, for his book "The Child Who Saved Our World." He relocated to Kentucky the same year, and is currently employed at the Creation Museum in Petersburg.
