Mac Grieve:  I started painting as a young boy of 9 – 10 in my  home town of Nipawin, Saskatchewan. This was a result of the long, cold Saskatchewan winters and an old box of oil paints  my mother had lying around. I stopped painting in 1967 with a move to B.C. and involvement in other interests. In 2005, I once again picked up my brushes, but quickly discovered that my style was more suited to acrylics than oils, so I made the switch and  I now paints exclusively with acrylics.

I'm self taught, having taken only a few classes with some prominent local artists, who had a great influence on his work. 

My work has been seen in several galleries and art shows in the South Surrey/White Rock area and several one- man shows at the Community Arts Council Gallery proved very successful, prompting me to open my in-home studio and gallery.

Most days will find me painting in the studio, out photographing reference material or looking for the next painting location. My work is heavily oriented to impressionistic landscapes, although I also enjoy painting florals  the occasional portrait and semi abstract works.
