Wildlife painting, illustration

Born to a wildlife artist father, Tom Beecham, Greg Beecham had art instruction from his childhood.  Bob Kuhn was also an important mentor.  Beecham was raised on a dairy farm in upstate New York, and his real passion is the outdoors.  It is said that everything Beecham paints has a golden hue, a trademark in his paintings of wildlife in landscape.

In 1994, he won the Wildlife Art News Award for his image of two Canadian geese flying in snowy woods, and in 2004, he was elected a member of the Northwest Rendezvous. At the 2004 Western Rendevous of Art he won the People’s Choice Award and an Award of Merit for his painting, Ice Floe Overlook. Greg Beecham was named the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Artist of the Year for 2005.
