Resident and artist of Burlington, Ron Greig has worked on a magnificent painting inspired by his daughter-in-law Dr. Nadia Salvo. His hope is to donate proceeds from his painting to Joseph Brant Hospital.
Inspiration on the "Thank You" painting:
"When this pandemic started I struggled a bit to find inspiration to paint. Like everyone else is finding I’m sure, it has been difficult not to focus on the negative. When I finally got back into my studio I wanted to paint something related to the current times and if I could, help out in some way.
The subject of this painting is my daughter-in-law Dr. Nadia Salvo. She is a Palliative Care doctor. She has also been called upon to conduct COVID-19 testing and just recently found out she will be assigned to help out in long term care facilities.
A few of Nadia's colleagues have already tested positive. We worry about her, but certainly admire her bravery.
I consider my painting ‘Thank You’ a tribute to all the doctors, nurses, healthcare workers and all other front liners who are working so hard and risking their own health to help keep us safe. " -

Ron Greig Artist Bio
As a graduate of the Graphic Arts program at Humber College, Ron Greig began his career as a sign designer and painter. His next job was with one of the largest outdoor advertising companies in Canada (Claude Neon, currently Outfront Media), where he reproduced small works of art into outdoor advertising spectacles that reached sizes of up to 1,200 square feet.
Working with seasoned masters at an early age, Ron soon became one of North America’s top artists in his field, with his renditions donning the streets of Canada, the United States, and many other countries across the globe. Having the opportunity to paint celebrity faces and a vast variety of other complex subject matter in huge proportions, helped contribute to the development of Ron’s exceptional eye for detail and colour.
During Ron’s forty year plus career in advertising, he also managed the hand paint studio, print production, wall mural painting and special effects.
Currently focused as an award winning realist painter, Ron enjoys creating and teaching in his home studio. A longtime resident of Burlington Ontario, he is also a member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painter’s Society, International Guild of Realism and executive member of the Burlington Fine Arts Association.
