Biography


Greg Eiselein is a life long Montanan born in Roundup and grew up on the family cattle ranch northwest of town in the Little Snowy Mountains.  He and his wife, Colene, reside on a small piece of the homestead lands where his great grandfather settled in 1903.  The history of this great region has always intrigued him.  A quote written by his newsman grandfather reads, "In its early existence, Roundup, was settled in 1882, and consisted of a little log store and saloon that entertained many a weary cowpuncher looking for strays up and down the Musselshell Valley.  Every year the ranchers would hold their roundups on the high grassy table land bordering where the town stands today."  In Greg's estimation it is a privilege to live, work, and study in this diversely interesting area .
 
Greg's capacity for creativity is boundless, working in oil and sculpture.  His subjects are wide ranging and include landscapes, wildlife, Native Americans, and western historical narratives.  His studies of bygone days of the American West are evident in many of his bronzes. In painting Greg strives to create aesthetically pleasing scenes, transposing images to canvas, yet interjecting his own appreciation and understanding of the physical landscape.  His paintings have been described as utilizing dynamic composition coupled with rich, pure color, from to warm to cool, often eliciting a strong emotional response.
 
Greg's art inclinations surfaced early; his talents were further cultivated during his brief art studies at Eastern Montana College, now MSU-Billings.
 
His artist statement reads," My urgency to create art grows daily.  It is what I must do to leave a legacy for future generations.   My passion in painting belongs to light and how it transforms color directly and indirectly on the subject at hand.   Ever the student I strive for improvement."
 
Eiselein's work appears in corporate and private collections [...]
