Greg Ure is a fine-art printmaker and freelance illustrator who works from his home studio in Kingsville, Melbourne. He works in both traditional methods and digital technologies. He has been working as a printmaker for 15 years and has participated in various group and solo exhibitions.
Greg’s linocuts are printed on archival papers using oil-based relief print inks. Printmaking can be a time-consuming and meticulous process, however, it delivers surprising and gratifying rewards through the creation of something by hand.
On display and available for purchase are works inspired by his interest in local wildlife and flora. The theme lends itself well to the bold, colourful and graphic qualities relief printmaking can produce.
Greg grew up in the township of Healesville, known for its wildlife sanctuary. A keen observer of the environment, it is where he developed an appreciation for the diversity and uniqueness of our native fauna. He also takes inspiration from our unique coastal environments, holidaying beachside regularly with family and friends and having lived for several years in St. Kilda.
