Gregory Cowal Sample

Gregory Cowal:

Born in Cleveland and raised in Mexico. After living there for 50 years, Gregory Cowal has come back to his ro0ts and country of birth. A few months before the pandemic broke out, he sold his restaurant business and found himself at a crossroads in life. Greg thought back to his high school years of drawing and designing and remembered he’d had a talent for it, (he attributes this to his maternal grandfather who was a fabulous artist) and he decided to take it up again. He started back up as a hobby while we were all in “shut down” and soon realized there was a future in what he was creating and so began the history of “La Familia Caborca” which is the backbone of the drawings. Greg summarizes his work thus: “Nothing about my work is preconceived. When I start a drawing, I don’t know where it’s going. There’s always an element of surprise to it. That is the wonder of Art!” If the name looks familiar, you’re right! He’s co-owner Sally Cowal’s stepson.
