About Your Artisan Instructor:

Warren Greene is an artist, furniture maker, art professor, and curator from Columbia, Tennessee.  His career includes college-level art instruction at Lipscomb University, Freed-Hardman University, and Austin Peay State University.  


He received his BA from Freed–Hardeman University and MFA from Memphis College of Art. He began his career as a landscape artist but gradually moved toward abstracted landscape.

His paintings contains layer upon layer of highly sanded and translucent surfaces that conceal and reveal loose atmospheric forms in a vibrant palette of color.
