Gregory Telthorster has been a practicing artist and teacher for the past 30 years. Much of his artwork is indicative of the domestic and international travels that he and his family have taken. It was not until Greg and his wife Marcia took a 25th wedding anniversary trip to Italy that his artwork became truly inspired. Captured on canvas are many of the landscapes of Tuscany and the architecture of ancient buildings and doorways which any European traveler will appreciate.

Having begun his art teaching career in 1977 with Hatboro Horsham school district, “Mr. T,” as he is affectionately known, has taught art to every level of student from kindergarten through undergraduate. Most recently he and his colleagues have been at the cutting edge of technology education integration. Their “Virtual Art Museum” project, which blends technology with art education, has been nationally recognized [learn more].

Shortly after the trip to Italy, Greg began experiencing weakness in his right hand. After a lengthy testing period, the Telthorster family's world was shaken when his muscle weakness was diagnosed as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig's disease [learn more]. This degenerative disease continues to be a challenge for Greg, yet his artwork provides a continuing positive impact on his life.

Most of the artwork on this website is work that has been completed after the ALS diagnosis. The imagery of Tuscany and other travel destinations continue to be a source of inspiration for Mr. Telthorster's artwork. He lives in Doylestown, PA with his wife Marcia and their two children, Jessica and Becca.
