Greg Garrett - Biography
Greg was born in 1954 in Alliance Nebraska. Greg still makes his home there and has worked for the BNSF Railway since 1974. Greg has always had an interest in art. In grade school Greg would draw horses and other things for students in his class. Although Greg has taken some short art courses when he was young, he enjoys reading about different techniques and experimenting on his own.
Greg is therefore basically a self taught artist, getting most of his information from books and videos by several different artists that he admires. He continued his interest in art through the years by doing various things. Greg built furniture and cabinets for a short time in the 70's through the 80's as a hobby. He also tried sculpture in the late 80's and 90's creating full figure bronzes of professional baseball players.
These bronze sculptures were made on commission for the players exclusively. When he started lettering and illustrating safety signs for the railroad facility in Alliance in the late 70's it led to a rekindled interest in drawing and painting. He has illustrated many posters, signs, cartoons, logos etc., for the railroad since then.
Greg's first train painting was titled "High Country Thunder" and now resides in BNSF Railway's Fort Worth Corporate Offices with four others, "Autumn Titans", "Sandhills Fury", "Sagebrush and Steel", and "Come Rain or Shine". He started and annual train painting in 2000 with "Giants in the Mist". In 2002 Greg started adding wildlife to the paintings.

The winning designer is Greg Garrett from Alliance.His plate received 46,460 votes - 42 percent of the vote.
Garrett, a 48-year-old railcar inspector for Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, said a lot of people in Alliance and western Nebraska voted for his design.
"They kind of stick together when somebody's out here representing them," he said shortly after the governor handed him a sample plate with his winning design.
Garrett said he wasn't sure if the western Nebraska votes pushed him to the top because that part of the state is sparsely populated.
He said winning was fine and good, but he would rather communicate through his artwork than talk.
"I'm not overly emotional," he said.
