Marcy Gregg’s distinctive artwork springs from a love of color, form, and texture. Born in
rural East Texas, she expressed an interest in art at an early age. She remained in
Texas after graduation from Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, where she
majored in studio art. After graduation, Marcy married and set her art aside while she
and her husband began a family. They soon relocated to Charlotte, NC and in the
busyness of family life Marcy continued to put her art on hold.
However, her life was changed forever after a serious complication arose during the
delivery of her third child, leaving Marcy in a coma from which there was little hope of
recovery. Overcoming incredible odds, through the healing power of God, Marcy
regained consciousness but lost most of her memory. Faced with the daunting task of
rebuilding her identity, Marcy slowly put the pieces of her life back together, even
starting her own corporate consulting business. But the gratitude she felt at being given
a second chance at life did not find expression in the corporate world. Determined to
make the most of the life that had been restored to her, Gregg sold her successful
business in 2006 and returned to her true passion, art. Gregg is honored to be the
recipient of the 2013 Charlotte, North Carolina Art With Heart Emerging Artist Award.
Marcy Gregg’s paintings are multifaceted explorations of the intrinsic beauty of form and
color and the inherent properties of her chosen medium, fine oil paints. Gregg’s creative
compositions reflect her love of color and texture. She builds layer upon layer of paint
to create a thick application.
I experience great joy when I stand in front of a canvas. In my miraculous
healing, God gave me a second chance at life; and each day that I paint I have a
second chance to pursue my love of art. I am motivated by color and texture. It
is what inspires me. It is my goal in each painting to leave something to the
imagination…lines lost or an unexpected perspective found. I want my viewer
intrigued. -Marcy Gregg
