Greer Inez is a photographer + visual artist + entrepreneur + actress + activist + creative muse for many. For Greer, creativity is a way of life- each moment that we are given invites us into an opportunity to be fully present + engage in life with curiosity + creativity. Greer has curated an eclectic life over the last four decades. And she delights in connecting the incredible people she’s met all over the globe throughout her lifetime- constantly creating connections + support for others in her wake. Greer is entrenched in many different industries, helping businesses grow their digital assets with their visual representation + brand development + growth strategies + their agility within the digital realms. Greer started her photography business in 2011. And she travels the world with her photo + video career- her preferred formats are 35mm + polaroid + super 8mm video. She is most well known for her nudes + editorial work in epic locations that typically celebrate architecture + natural elements/landscapes. Greer helps businesses with creative direction + their digital mindset + curating content for their visuals. Because of the way Greer connects with people, her photos + videos often have an intimate portraiture feel to them- very much like her dad’s journalistic style.Greer’s greatest pleasure is creating art- exhilarated by the entire process of creating something that once only existed in the imagination. Greer thinks that we are all artists + we are micro-creating every mundane moment of our day. Creativity is a portal for our expression + expansion + a vital aspect to our health. Experiencing art + especially creating art is where we can expand beyond our previous limits. And when we express ourselves, we connect to our own authenticity, which has invaluable health benefits. Greer resonates with the Buddhist philosophy- our attachments [to materials + perspectives + past experiences + expectations for the future] create our suffering by taking us out of the present moment- the process of creating art + the act of expression are ways she drops into the present moment + releases her attachments that cause her suffering. When we hop into the act of creation, we subconsciously loosen our grip on previous perspectives + also become more creative in all areas of our lives. With a focus on the [health] benefits that come with prioritizing creativity, Greer continues to produce art. Typically mounting her photos onto large pieces of wood + painting encaustics [an ancient technique that originated in Egypt in 100-300AD where you paint with very hot melted wax] + oil paint + acrylic + water color onto them. She started exhibiting her artwork in galleries more regularly in 2018. Greer has been working with clay 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.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. Greer’s vast curiosity + thirst for knowledge got her described as having authority issues at a very young age. Realizing the limitations of the small town experience + education she received in Norman + wanting to empower herself with as much knowledge as she could, Greer studied Architecture + Art History + Political Science + 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 went onto 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 small community feel- she calls Oklahoma + Southern California home where she raises her two sons, deeply connected to their family + communities. Greer 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. Greer relentlessly dreams of inspiring others to deepen their relationship with their own creativity + communities.
