Greer Inez is a visual artist + entrepreneur + activist + art collector. Her preferred mediums are film photography + encaustics. Greer is the founder of Quickies Minis [est. 2020] + co-founder of Golden Hour Delights [est. 2021] + High Rise Provisions [est. 2022]. She recently started acting- and was cast in her first feature film in 2020- Tenkiller [which starts streaming on Amazon Prime on Nov. 18 2022] + The Awkward Stage in 2022.
For Greer, creativity is a portal for expansion + a very important part of emotional + mental health [creating it + experiencing it.] She continues to relentlessly dream of connecting others to their own expansion through creativity in all its mediums + expressions.
Greer was born + raised in Norman, Oklahoma with 4 years of her childhood in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where she fell in love with cajun food + cajun culture + of course, all things New Orleans + Mardi Gras. She studied architecture + religion + art history at The University of Oklahoma; and spent a year in Barcelona studying Spanish + art + traveling Europe on the epic eurail. After receiving her bachelors from OU, she traveled more of the world- falling into a deeper love affair with art + humanity + the planet- wanting to help with the climate crisis + social justice on a global level. Greer then moved to Denver for graduate school in justice studies + gender studies at The University of Denver and Buddhism at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado- where she also immersed herself in the yoga + cycling + snowboard communities. Greer has quite a nomadic heart, but calls Oklahoma + Southern California home- where she raises her two sons, deeply connected to their family + communities. She is devoted to helping humanity rise by intuitively giving her love + time + resources where they’re needed in her communities.
One constant throughout her life has been art- in all its forms. Her dad also always had his camera out- documenting their lives in black + white film. Since her teenage years, Greer has worn a camera on her as if it were an accessory to every outfit- often a 35mm disposable. Her camera has become an extension of her, she sees things with her unique eye + captures it quickly- in a journalistic way, similar to her dad’s style of photography. Greer started her photography business in 2011 + she has expanded into many mediums + dimensions since.
Greer has experienced success with her photography + videography- her preferred formats being 35mm + polaroid + super 8mm video. When she isn’t working on her own businesses, Greer works on many creative teams offering creative direction + brand development- creating + curating content for their visuals.
Greer’s greatest pleasure is creating art. Using her photos + encaustics + oil paint + acrylic paint, Greer creates pieces of art with the intention of bringing inspiration into her collectors’ homes. She is known for celebrating the human body + our planet + often infuses her work with one of her greatest hopes- that everyone has the freedom to express themselves to their maximum desires. Greer’s most recent exhibition at MAINSITE contemporary art gallery was a collection of pieces from her series called Femme Form. She is currently creating an encaustics series with her dad + booking exhibitions + accepting commissions through 2023.
Greer has learned most about art from her parents + the hours she’s spent in museums + art galleries as a child- which remain places of peace + inspiration + connection to the collective for her. Greer started collecting art on her travels at a young age + with the influence of her parents, became infatuated with pop art in the 90s roaming galleries. Greer realized the investment art can be when she witnessed pop artists like Andy Warhol [one of her all time muses] + Keith Haring die when she was young + their work increase in value throughout her lifetime. Her most recent endeavor is a lifelong dream of educating others about art + the fun experience of collecting art- all to take into consideration when making an investment, from small to large. Greer is hoping to finally open an art gallery in 2023: a collection of mindfully curated creative investments.
