Greer started her photography business in 2011 while she was still in graduate school, shortly after having her first son.

She helps businesses with creative direction + brand development + growth strategies + curating content for their visuals. Greer is most well known for her nudes + editorial work in epic locations that typically celebrate architecture + natural elements/landscapes. She started exhibiting her artwork in galleries more regularly in 2018, and started dealing art in 2019- selling her own work + other artists’ work to private collectors + interior designers + boutique hotels. With Greer’s lifelong love for architecture, she has kept a pulse on the real estate industry + witnessed the sound investment that it is. She got into the California real estate market in 2009 + has continued to grow her wealth in that industry. Wanting to diversify her portfolio, she hopped into the fast-growing industry of cannabis in 2019. Greer is the founder of Quickies Minis [est. 2020] + co-founder of Golden Hour Delights [est. 2021] + High Rise Provisions [est. 2022].

For Greer, creativity is a portal for expansion + a vital aspect to our health [creating art + experiencing art.] Through art, she believes that we process life- we grow, we escape, we grieve, we heal, we connect, we celebrate, we expand, we tap into infinity + become more creative. Through creativity + art, we become better in all dimensions- at whatever we [already] are. Greer relentlessly dreams of inspiring others to deepen their relationship with their own creativity. Greer started acting “late in life,” in hopes of inspiring her creativity in other dimensions. She was cast in her first feature film in 2020- Tenkiller [which started streaming on Amazon Nov. 2022] + The Awkward Stage in 2022.
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 + Art History + Native American Studies at The University of Oklahoma; and spent a year in Barcelona studying Spanish + art + traveling all of Europe on the epic Eurail. After receiving her bachelors from OU, she received the opportunity to spend another summer in Barcelona + attend the Parliament of World Religions + learn from some incredible world activists like the Dalai Lama + Thich Nhat Hanh + Jane Goodall- falling into a deeper love affair with art + the planet + humanity and wanting to help with the climate crisis on a global level. Which lead her to graduate school in Colorado, studying Justice Studies + Gender Studies at The University of Denver and studying Buddhism at Naropa University in Boulder- where she also immersed herself in the yoga + cycling + snowboard communities. Greer has quite a nomadic heart, but she loves to garden + loves the feel of a local community, she calls Oklahoma + Southern California home- where she raises her two sons, deeply connected to their family + communities. She is devoted to helping humanity progress by intuitively giving her love + time + resources where they’re needed in her communities. Some of the organizations she is able to help with most often are Food & Shelter for Friends + Women’s Healthcare + Oklahoma Pride + The Floret Coalition + Green Peace + Gun Safety + Amnesty International + ACLU Oklahoma.
A constant throughout Greer’s life has been art- in all its forms. Music always playing in their childhood home. Her dad always had his camera out- documenting their lives in black + white film. Since her teenage years, Greer has also 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. Art + history + politics + music + education + sports + the effect humans are having on the animals + planet were the topics of discussion + concepts like love + gratitude + humor + family were the focus in her home. Greer comes from a very active + competitive family. Her dad ran for Nike throughout her childhood + a last minute 5k no one properly trained for or a pick-up game of basketball remain the norms in their family get-togethers [which now range from ages 6 years old to 75 years old]. Grateful to be raising her sons among her parents + brother’s family where that nostalgic commentary + competitive banter + family values continue to be the focus.
Greer’s greatest pleasure is creating art- exhilarated by the entire process of creating something that once only existed in the imagination. Typically mounting her photos onto large pieces of wood + painting encaustics + oil paint + acrylic onto them. Greer has been working with clay more in an apprenticeship- creating sculptures of nude busts + bodies inspired by her Aunt Inez’s work. Greer’s most recent exhibition at MAINSITE contemporary art gallery was a collection of pieces from her series called Femme Form. She is 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 especially in the 90s roaming galleries on family travels + listening [eavesdropping] to her parents’ discourse about art with each other + their friends + gallery owners. Greer realized the investment art can be as she witnessed pop artists like Andy Warhol [one of her favorite 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 there is to take into consideration when making an investment, from small to large. For Greer, there is nothing like the feeling of connecting someone with a special piece that lights up their face- knowing they are taking it home, where they can enjoy it every day. Because of limited space, she typically takes appointments to shop her available collection. With a life-long love for design + passion for how we experience art with all of our senses, Greer is hoping to finally open a brick + mortar gallery in 2023 where she has the freedom + space to mindfully exhibit her available collection the way she envisions.
