Gregore’s love of art was nurtured by a deep sense of connection to artists of the past to present, from comic book art to those who made the magnificent Haida Totem poles of his Vancouver British Columbia countryside where Gregore was born and raised.
With voracious appetite for new ideas, experimentation, exquisite detail and his innate playfulness are sharply reflected in his magnificent jewelry designs and object d’art.
“Art is about distilling down ones life story into a connection with the viewer.”

“I strive to keep my work whimsical, fun to look at and own while surrendering to nature’s forms and lines, allowing them to express themselves through me and my work.
I am drawn to lines that start and stop but continue in another area. And just when I think I have a clever idea, I try to remind myself that nature created it all before and I am just rediscovering.”
