With Greg Simkins’ “The Pearl Thief” exhibition opening next Tuesday at Gallery1988, we thought we’d visit Greg and see how things were wrapping up.

Professional, organized, and family oriented – those are the first things that come to mind when first stepping into Greg’s studio. These same themes continue throughout the rest of the studio’s rooms. Greg was finishing up one of his last paintings for the upcoming show when we dropped by, but took a little break to give us a tour. In addition to a large work space, the studio has two other rooms along with a small kitchen area and restroom. This is certainly a comfortable work environment and very fitting as Greg often works long hours. Greg showed us his work for the upcoming show and some ideas he has planned for future paintings. We also got to check out Greg’s new online store.

Take a look at all the photos from our visit after the jump…
