George Beggs - Artist Bio

George Beggs and wife Kathy


George Beggs was born in 1940 in Enid, Oklahoma in a farming family. He studied architecture at Oklahoma State University where he received a Masters of Architecture in 1967. He developed a passion for photography while a student and this carried over into his professional practice in Boston and New York City during the 1960's and 1970's. In 1976 George was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts grant to make photographic studies of urban pedestrian spaces in four American cites; New York, Washington D.C., Atlanta and Amarillo, TX. Also, during his years in Boston and New York, George's architectural design and artwork was shown in museums and exhibitions. During the 1980's and 1990's George designed medical products, founded a small company to manufacture and sell those products and continued to make photographs. After retiring from business in 2004, he began developing his skill to "render" digital images in a manner aimed at capturing the essential nature of subjects while allowing some detail of the images to be obscured or removed. The result of this study is a series of digital landscape renderings which are "painterly" in character but are strongly rooted in photography.
Technical information:
