Greg Newbold Biography

Greg Newbold painter

  

"For me, art is a soulful expression. What I see or feel is distilled through my own life experience. I simplify, edit and filter my vision as light, color, shape and texture.  Everything combines to make something beautiful. Hopefully the piece of me that comes out at the end of my brush connects with the spirit of the viewer. "
