Hugh Greer grew up in Kansas City, Missouri and has been painting since 1st grade. He graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Industrial Design. His love of dramatic weather and textural vistas was influential in his decision to change careers from architectural delineation and industrial design to fine art. He uses acrylics as his primary medium. Hugh has won numerous major awards including: Top 100 Grand Prize, Mini 100 Grand Prize, People's Choice and Region III Winner in the Arts for the Parks Competition; Board of Directors Award and Award of Excellence in Watercolor Missouri National; and Best of Show in the Kansas 7 State Watercolor Exhibition. His work has also been featured in instructional books and DVD's. His book, Hugh Greer: Missouri to New Mexico, was published in 1997.
