“I’ve applied the bronc rider mentality to the artwork, and it’s served me well.” –Greg Kelsey
Greg Kelsey is an active cowboy and artist and his work is reflective of western life styles, traditions and history. Greg is mostly a self taught artist, and considers himself a storyteller and wants the viewer to feel the movement, action and mindset of his subjects. Kelsey keeps cattle, horses, a strict studio schedule, and has a family of four in his busy daily life. Greg and his wife Terah, daughter and son reside in Ignacio, Colorado.
“Whether it’s buckin’ horses, ropin’, pushin’ cows or whatever, that’s where I get my inspiration for art,” Greg says. Greg feels he is living the dream and is inspired daily by his blessed life. Greg’s work has won multiple awards, including the Award of Excellence from the American Plains Artists’ Show, People’s Choice at the CM Russell Art Auction, and Best Sculpture at Quest for the West.
