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.
