Greg Beecham

Greg Beecham is in his fortieth year of full-time painting. He specializes in wildlife art. Greg's vision is to sculpt with paint. That is, he paints in such a way that there is not only the illusion of dimension, but genuine depth to the paint itself. His ideal is unity in the context of simplicity and beauty.

Greg is a six-time wildlife award recipient at the Prix de West Western Art Show, National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City. He has been awarded the Buyer's Choice medal at Prix de West as well. He has received the Artist's Choice award and People's Choice award at the Western Visions Show, National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, Wyoming. Beecham was initiated into the Gilcrease Rendezvous Hall of Fame and recognized with a retrospective of his work at the Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa, Oklahoma. His work is in the permanent collections of the Gilcrease Museum, the National Museum of Wildlife Art, the Montana Historical Museum, and the Briscoe Museum.

Greg lives high in the Wyoming Rockies with his wife, Lu. They have two grown children. They enjoy their horses, hunting, and watching and photographing the local wildlife. As a Christian, Beecham honors the sanctity of life and the beauty of creation. His motto is, "Do all things unto the Lord, and get so good you can't be ignored."
