Greg Wilson was born and raised in the small mining town of Telluride, Colorado. From a very early age most of his free time was spent outdoors watching the animals and then going home in the evening and putting on paper what he had experienced that day.
Today Greg still spends most of his time watching, sketching and photographing the animals of the mountain west. He travels hundreds of miles just to get a glance at different animals. Whether it is a mountain goat in Little Cottonwood Canyon, grizzly gears in Yellowstone, mountain lions in southern Utah or big horn sheep in Montana, he goes where the animals can be found carrying his paints and camera.
Over the years he has gathered an impressive collection of photographs and today sells his photos to a number of different outdoor magazines and calendars. After winning numerous awards for painting, Greg decided to pursue art as a career. His most recent award is the Patrons Choice Award at the Arts for the Parks National competition. Today Greg's paintings can be found in collections across the US and Canada; and his photos can be seen on the covers of different wildlife publications.
