Greg Wilson

Much of the first twenty-five years of Greg's life was spent the mountains at his home in Telluride, Colorado. It was not unusual for Greg to set off for days in search of the animals his grandfather and father taught him to appreciate. What started out as Greg's interest as a child and dream as a young adult, has turned into a career choice that allows him to find the greatest satisfaction. His self-taught style has come from lifelong exposure and appreciation of the outdoors. His artwork, once given only as gifts, can be found on magazine covers and in the homes of art collectors throughout the country.

Wilson attended Colorado Institute of Art and Utah State University. His work has been on many covers of wildlife magazines as well as on the Utah Big Game Proclamation in 1996, 1997, 1999 and 2000. His painting was chosen as Artist's Choice in the 1999 western Heritage Artists Art Show. He has also received many other recognitions and awards by wildlife foundations. Today Greg spends much of his time sketching, photographing and observing the animals he paints. In 2004 and 2005 he placed among the top 100 entries in the prestigious Arts for the Parks competition, winning the founders favorite in 2004. In 2006, he has had work in both the Artist for the New Century and Art of the Animal Kingdom XI. Greg believes first observation of the bird and animals he paints is the key to his work. Greg currently lives in Draper, Utah with his wife and two daughters.
