Greg Rudd

Literary Arts: Ernest Hemingway (1999)

As a child, Greg Rudd was captivated by the gallery of images that arrived at his family home each day on the corners of letters and packages. The art that appeared on postage inspired his interest in painting and fueled his dream to one day illustrate a stamp. A gifted portraitist and illustrator, he conveys the essence of his subjects by depicting them as simply and as gracefully as possible with passion, color, and composition. He is known for painting the legends of the sport of golf, which began when he was commissioned to create a likeness of Francis Ouimet for the U.S. Postal Service.
