Gregg Williard

Artist Statement: 

Many of my recent drawings work in counterpoint to my stories, less illustrative than prompt, evocation or suggestion. I like working with very limited materials (pencil, pen) in a manner that minimizes, for me, the space between impulse and image. Figuration is a natural choice for me, but usually in the service of something closer to dreams.


Gregg Williard is a writer and visual artist. He is a teacher of English as a Second Language for refugees at the non-profit Literacy Network in Madison, Wisconsin.

His drawings were the recent subject of a one-person exhibition at the Ohio State University Lima Gallery in Lima, Ohio.
