Greg Newbold doesn’t remember life without art. His gift was recognized at an early age and was fueled by supportive parents who kept him supplied with paints, pencils, paper and clay. Greg has earned both a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree fand an MFA from the Hartford Art School under the mentorship of such industry legends as Murray Tinkelman, C.F Payne and Gary Kelley. His skill set now includes digital painting and gallery oil painting. He feels fortunate to be able to pursue a career in the field that he loves. His artistic philosophy is to make the world a more beautiful place through his paintings.
Throughout Greg's career, his recognizable brand of work has been commissioned by such notable clients as Simon & Schuster, Random House, Heinz Foods, Harper Collins, Smuckers, Pilgrim’s Pride, Kleenex, Barnes & Noble and The Wall Street Journal.
