I am a professional fine artist based in Cascais and I am always looking for the next opportunity to translate life experiences into art.
I have been painting for 35 years now. I am largely self-taught, apart from attending a summer course at the Slade, London, in 1997.
For about two years now, I have been working with another artist, Francisco Capelo from Studio de Arte, Carcavelos, and as a result of this, I have changed and developed my style considerably. Now I paint in an abstract style, using acrylics, collage and ink.
I have had several exhibitions in and around the Lisbon area.

The Collaborative Paintings, with Francisco Capelo
These are the collaborative paintings of myself and Francisco Capelo https://www.franciscocapelo.net. It is quite unusual for two artists to work together on the same painting, but we have found it works very well for us. Take a moment to look through the gallery, and get in touch for more information.

I was drawn to Glen's artwork, 'Self Portrait', by the colour palette and the fact that each time I look at it I see something different in it.

I have several of Glen's paintings, which I have bought over the years. i love the vibrant colours in his compositions and I never tire of looking at them.

O Glen é um pintor com uma diversidade incrível de cores, formas e texturas. ele é, sem dúvida, um dos mais talentosos artistas visuais que conheci.
