Greg Beecham Artist

Greg Beecham is a wildlife artist who lives surrounded by his subject matter high in the Wyoming Rockies. His recent awards include the Red Smith Artist’s Choice Award at the 2005 Western Visions Miniatures and More Show at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He was among the artist showing at the new Quest for the West Show in 2006 at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, Indiana. He won the People’s Choice Award in 2005 for the second year in a row at the Western Rendezvous of Art in Helena, Montana, as well as an Award of Merit in 2004. He was awarded People’s Choice (second time) in 2005 at the C.M. Russell Auction in Great Falls, Montana. In previous years, he was also Artist’s Choice and Best of Show winner at the Russell event.

Beecham calls his work painterly realism. He enjoys the drama of light and shadow as it plays on abstract shapes. His hope is that this interplay will result in a life expressing image, giving joy to the viewer and glory to God. Though landscape is inevitably part of the wildlife artist’s repertoire, he finds himself drawn to the niche where an animal resides at a given moment.

Beecham, during his 29 years of painting, has become an incomparable interpreter of fur, skin, muscle, and movement. He can capture the tensile lift of a running wolf’s haunches or the expression and personality of a snarling mountain lion. Beecham’s father, the late Tom Beecham also an artist, was his first teacher. Greg did not pursue art during his high school years, but after serving in the Navy and going to college, he studied with his Dad throughout the summer of 1978. He has been painting full time ever since.

He has been featured in Art of the West, Southwest Art, Wildlife Art, Sporting Classics, U.S. Art and Bugle magazines. He is a member of The Northwest Rendezvous Group of Artists, the Society of Animals Artists, and a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
