Artist’s label

From the 2014 Cowboy Artists of America exhibition catalog, “Born and raised in Clifton, Texas, Martin Grelle still lives on a small ranch a few miles from town. His studio sits in the picturesque Meridian Creek Valley, surrounded by the oak-and-cedar-covered hills of Bosque County, renowned enclave for several elite artists and home to many of Martin’s family and friends.

“Martin began drawing and painting when he was very young and was fortunate to have James Boren and Melvin Warren, two professional artists and members of the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America, move to the area when he was still in high school. They made a lasting impact on his direction and career. Mentored by Boren, Martin had his first one-man show at a local gallery within a year of graduating high school in 1973. In the 40 years since, he has produced some 30 one-man exhibitions and won awards of regional and national importance.”
