My Name is Greg Gallegos. I have always been artistically inclined since I was very young. I was heavily into wood shop in high school. I first fell in love with the lathe there. It took me another ten years after high school to be able to purchase a lathe and apprentice myself for a good five years. Once I felt I was ready to start selling, I did the local craft and art markets locally. Having done a few large shows in the country, I have settled into a fairly normal routine of being spontaneously creative at times and then prodigiously productive at other times. Trying to find a happy medium...not likely to happen but...I love wood with a passion which keeps me wondering what the next piece of wood I cut into will show me.

For the last 10 years or so I have been turning full time. I desire to use the wood to create pieces that will speak to and make people feel warm inside with content. My inspiration truly comes from the wood itself in trying bring out its own qualities.
