Growing up somewhat of a gypsy, Greg has lived up and down the east coast. After receiving his BFA from the University of Georgia, Greg settled in Annapolis, Maryland where he joined up with Rob and Pam.

Greg has spent much of his working years living in the past. His historical paintings have brought renewed life to archaeological discoveries from the earliest fossil records to turn-of-the-century America. He created a series of murals for the Frank H. McClung Museum in Knoxville, Tennessee entitled “Archaeology and the Native Peoples of Tennessee”, a 120 foot mural on the history of firearms for the Frazier Historical Arms Museum, and contributed to the Field Museum's Ancient Americans Exhibit in Chicago. One of his magnificent historical paintings currently adorns the pedestrian entrance to the United States Naval Academy. His work has appeared in National Geographic magazine, books, and television, the National Park Service publications, waysides and exhibits, Readers Digest books, Kids Discover magazine, Archaeology and Smithsonian and numerous stamps for the U.S. Postal Service. His illustrations earned awards from The Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts, and American Illustration. 

Greg has also illustrated many beautiful children’s books. He has brought to life such interesting historical figures such as John Adams, George Washington and Paul Revere. His most recent achievement was illustrating the book "We the People" by Lynne Cheney, which became a national bestseller.
