Greenslade's Organic Forrestry is inspired by his life-long love of nature. "I was that kid who could always be found in an old stream bed, turning over rocks to see what wonders I could discover," he explaines. This curiosity led Dr. Greenslade to a life as a molecular biologist and organizational executive. "Now in my dotage, I am back turning over rocks, and painting and sculpting the wonders that nature reveals to me." he smiles.
Greenslade's use of materials is eclectic -- metal, concrete, wood, clay, camvas and paint.. "I use whatever media helps me tell my stories," he stresses. I'm having more fun than any old guy deserves".
