Born 1963 in Flint, Michigan, Greg Creason studied in Grand Rapids at Kendall College of Art and Design at Ferris Sate University and graduated in 1990 with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in Illustration.
Starting in the early 1990s, and living in California, he worked for twelve years with Thomas Kinkade and Media Arts Group. Creason was Kinkade’s first apprentice and eventually settled in Monterey, CA. Creason worked with sculptor, Richard MacDonald, in 2004-2005 archiving MacDonald’s drawings and sketches and working in the production department.
In 2009 he moved to New Orleans because he was inspired by the brilliant colors, the eclectic people, beautiful scenery and the thrumming history that beats life into the city he now calls home.
Creason’s works will invoke passion, boundless love, color and awe. His wife is his muse and main inspiration, always motivating him to create artwork that he might not have on his own. Creason chooses to depict women to spotlight their inner and outer strengths, beauty, and mystery. Using found jewelry, hand-blown glass, and garments to embellish his paintings, no two will ever be the same, but will always leave you inspired and entranced by his use of color.
