Greg Humphries

I try to connect people to their environment with my art. I started out as a landscape painter, but it was only through undertaking a masters degree in 2009 that I realised the best way to connect people to their environment was to take them into that environment and get them to make the art! This is now the core of my practice and through my work I specialise in outdoor education and woodland management.

My sculptures are the result of many traditional processes and knowledge absorbed from travels in the Amazon & the Arctic, as well as Europe and the British Isles. I gather

the raw materials myself and use these traditional skills over many days to create the finished piece.

What our students say

What worked for me was masses of individual attention and encouragement and positive support, the opportunity to sketch outside. These days have opened doors I have been longing to open. Thank you Greg.

Debs Blyth

Thank you Greg you’re fantastic – inspirational – very knowledgeable and very patient! Thanks for everything Greg.

Jaci Richards

Very enjoyable course. Just the right balance of walking and drawing/painting. Greg was an excellent tutor and I learned loads. 

Richard Mayo

It was great to have 3 days to develop skills at a good pace, lots of skills and techniques very clearly explained and demonstrated. It was like a foundation in 3 days! Greg was very supportive and gave advice and direction when needed. I enjoyed the ‘field work’ but loved the studio time, a luxury for a painter like me. Thank you i’d love to come again next year.

Vivienne

The best three days since I last attended a course there.
