Drew Gregory was born in Melbourne in 1947. He studied printmaking and painting at Prahran  Technical College and R.M.I.T. as well as Fine Arts at the University of Melbourne. During this time he received tuition from many notable artists including George Baldessin, Jan Senbergs Andrew Sibley and Peter Booth. Later in life he gained valuable insights and advice from Albert Tucker and Clifton Pugh.

It was Pugh`s son Shane who organized the highly successful Drew Gregory/Clifton Pugh national touring exhibition (1996-97), unique for reaching remote Aboriginal communities, major towns and capital cities in nearly all states with an amazing twenty-three openings.

Drew has held fifty-one solo shows and has been involved in numerous group exhibitions throughout Australia; but has also held highly successful solo exhibitions in Chicago, Toronto, Hong Kong, Kowloon and Singapore. Over half of his Australian solo exhibitions have been sell-outs.

He has been a finalist in NATIONAL EXHIBITIONS  including:

The Doug Moran Portrait Prize where he won Nation`s Choice; in 1994, the A.C.T.A. Shipping Awards (twice), the Tattersall’s Club National Landscape Prize (finalist ten times), the Discovery Art Show and Prints Across Australia touring regional galleries.

In 200820102011 and 2014 he won Members’ Choice in the Tattersall’s Club  National Landscape Prize. In 2014 he also won  the inaugural ‘Henry Bartlett Peoples’ Choice Award’ in the same competition.
