Greg J. Grady
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…
Greg Grady is a self-taught artist and a 2nd generation sand sculptor, who is a veteran of the Marine Corp (Semper Fi). An ephemeral artist; he works with sand, snow, ice, wood and pumpkins.
Greg developed his love for sand sculpture as a young child, creating sculptures with his father. Growing up, any chance Greg had, he’d travel with his father to professional sand sculpture events for the opportunity to play in some of the biggest and best sand boxes any kid could imagine.
Today, Greg’s childhood dreams are a reality — with a career creating sculptures in sand at events around the globe. Greg has been entertaining the masses with his creations since 2009 at events, festivals, and masters-level sand sculpture competitions. Greg has earned his share of prizes and awards and is always striving for excellence — whether it’s creating art competitively or making a commercial piece for a client. His travels have brought him from all over the U.S. — to Canada, Europe, Japan, Kuwait, the Virgin Islands, Mexico, and many other places.
Greg expanded his professional sand sculpture business into organizing contests, exhibitions, promotional events, and team building workshops. He and his father Greg Sr. are currently the driving force behind 2 renowned events, The Hampton Beach Master Sand Sculpting competition in New Hampshire and the longest sand sculpture trail in the world on Cape Cod Massachusetts, The Yarmouth Summer Celebration Kick Off.
Greg plans to continue doing what he loves — making art and sharing his creations with people and places all over the world. He is always expanding his techniques and honing his skills, so be sure to keep an eye on this artist to wow the crowds, both in the art of sand and beyond.
