Gregory R Smith

Gregory R. Smith FVAS past President, Hon. Life Member, over 30 years teaching experience.

The constant challenge to gain a greater understanding of how and what we see has been a driving force behind my need to paint.

As an artist and teacher, developing greater visual knowledge allows my artwork to have a purpose, one of education. Accepting the limitations of paint to attempt to capture the truth before us is an important part of our growth. Every painting is a new lesson.

While painting always ‘direct from life’ the journey is endless, and forever fascinating and stimulating.

Over my artistic career I have held 43 solo exhibitions and have received some 200 art awards for still life, portraiture, landscape, floral and life work.
