About Glenise Glelland

Glenise is an experienced visual artist and fashion designer.

She is influenced by nature, fashion design and her travels throughout Australia and Pacific islands. We are happy to call her a friend.

'Glenise is an award winning Australian artist working from her studio at Indooroopilly Brisbane.

For 23 years her studio at Noosa North Shore was surrounded by acres of waterlily covered wetlands and amazing bird life.

The ever changing light and colours were a constant source of inspiration for many paintings and drawings.'

'Her paintings have been selected in Regional Galleries and prestigious prize exhibitions in Australia and overseas. Her art is now in 15 countries and across Australia in Government, Corporate and private collections.'

'Since the 1970's she has lived and travelled in the South Pacific Islands

her paintings have been inspired by her observations of fast changing cultures.

As a mother, she has had an empathy for the mothers and babes she has met and painted in remote villages.'

Her travels in Europe and Australia feature in her works. The bright colours of the outback reflect in some of her work.

The landscapes around her inspire.

Studies of light are apparent in her work - from the Noosa Wetlands

To the rainforests in Northern Queensland. The beautiful colour combinations create happy pieces.

The studies of her models show the personality with lines and colours. Perhaps having worked with so many models in her fashion design career has evolved to such characters!

Life drawing - drawing with a live model - has been the backbone of all her artist endeavours both landscape and figurative

Sometimes the subject is just an excuse to play with colour. Click on the image above to see her YouTube videos.

The colours and facial expressions say so much.
