Biography from the Archives of askART

Biography photo for Greg Beecham
Born to a wildlife artist father, Tom Beecham, Greg Beecham had art instruction from his childhood.  Bob Kuhn was also an important mentor.  Beecham was raised on a dairy farm in upstate New York, and his real passion is the outdoors.  It is said that everything Beecham paints has a golden hue, a trademark in his paintings of wildlife in landscape.

In 1994, he won the Wildlife Art News Award for his image of two Canadian geese flying in snowy woods, and in 2004, he was elected a member of the Northwest Rendezvous.  At the 2004 Western Rendevous of Art he won the People's Choice Award and an Award of Merit for his painting, Ice Floe Overlook.  Greg Beecham was named the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Artist of the Year for 2005.

He lives in Dubois in the Wind River area of Wyoming.

Biography from Altermann Galleries and Auctioneers, II
Greg Beecham has been painting full time for thirty two years. He has specialized in wildlife art. Greg's vision is to "sculpt with paint" - that is to paint in such a way that there is not only the illusion of dimension, but genuine depth to the paint itself.

He believes that if he can speak with paint more than detail, that the net result will be a life expressing realism.

Greg lives high in the Rockies in Dubois, WY with his wife, Lu. They enjoy riding their horses, hunting, cowboying, and watching the wildlife. As a Christian, Beecham honors the sanctity of life and the beauty of nature.

His motto is "Do all things as unto the Lord, and get so good you can't be ignored."
