Following college, Greg entered a career path that included technical illustration, computer graphics, computer-based training, and multimedia programming. Throughout those years, Greg always kept his brushes and charcoal close at hand. After 911, he and his wife Janet decided to take a leap of faith, pursuing a fine art career full time. Greg quickly found portrait work, due to his ability to capture a remarkable likeness. His versatility shines with abilities in charcoal, pastel, and oil. Landscapes are Greg’s love. He enjoys painting on location, and as a result of working quickly, leans towards impressionism.
