Largely self-taught, Gregory Packard works each day to paint in the vein of the Impressionists. “I wish to carry on the conversation began by Monet, and I believe there is still much to be said,” says Gregory. Having been an avid drawer while growing up, Gregory did not begin to paint in earnest until 1998. After 14 years of painting, his work infuses the stately quality of the traditional Impressionists with his own unique approach and subject choices.
Gregory was born in 1970 in Boise, Idaho and now makes his home in Montrose, Colorado. His work has recently been featured in Southwest Art magazine (August 2012) and in Art of the West (March 2010). Gregory has been featured in numerous one person shows at leading galleries across the United States and his work is collected internationally.
“It is this daily life we live, the nature of ourselves and our world, that so excites me when standing before my canvas— life’s vital creation that is my source of inspiration and humility.”
