Greg Braun is an artist whose work has been exhibited in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, and California. He lives and works in rural Hartwood, Virginia from a home he renovated that includes an office, workshop, and studio. His creative time is spent between creating artwork, designing custom CAD software and giving classroom instruction for various types of CAD software.
Graduating from the Corcoran School of Art in 1982 with a major in sculpture, he continued making studio art and exhibiting work at local galleries in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. He worked for several fabrication facilities, including a neon sculpture studio, until taking up a long-term career as a cabinetmaker for custom cabinetry and millwork shops in Northern Virginia. He has also worked on many exhibit fabrication projects for national museums, science centers, and corporate exhibits. In 1990, Greg began teaching himself to use AutoCAD computerized drafting software and studying the history of Mid-Century Modern architecture through web sites, books, and site visits of selected works. His current body of work is an extension of these long term architectural pursuits, creating wall mounted sculptures and site-specific installations that entice viewers into experiencing a new architectural topography.
