Hello, my name is Glen Smith and welcome to my website. I was born and grew up in Sussex by the sea, where I was always finding time to paint and draw at an early age. On leaving school, found a career in the printing industry, working with type, drawing pens and camera equipment to create artwork for print. I have continued to draw and paint throughout my life, gaining inspiration from the natural landscape; wide open spaces like the coast, moorlands and the Downs – places visited as a child and more recently with my own family. Working mainly in acrylics, I seek to capture atmosphere, mood and light in my paintings, overpainting knife work and base colours to influence the layers above.
I hope you enjoy looking at my work – please feel free to contact me should you like any further information or wish to commission a painting of your favourite place.
