A sculpture major at Virginia Commonwealth University, Lou Greiner has worked in various mediums including fiberglass, metal and porcelain. She produced her first miniature clay scene thirty years ago. Because her technique has taken so long to develop, Lou teaches workshops to spread interest in miniatures and her unique process. Over the years Lou has won regional and national awards and participated in various shows. April of 2006 found Lou as artist-in-residence for two weeks at Callaway Gardens, Georgia followed by Sculpture in the South and Plantation Wildlife Arts Festival. In 2007, Lou was commissioned to do three botanicals for the Smithsonian; in February of 2008 they were installed in the Natural History Museum. Lou is currently working on a series, “In Our Hands.” Lou states, “I am intrigued by the natural world and every detail in it. Surprises abound in nature. I try to incorporate this in the miniatures and hope that individuals viewing them will remember with a sense of awe and reverence when taking a woodland walk.”
