Glenise has now moved her studio to Pullenvale ,Brisbane where she continues to create inspiring paintings and drawings.
Glenise Clelland has been exhibiting her paintings for over 4 decades & has won many awards. Glenise studied Fashion Design at the Brisbane College of Art and for many years designed hundreds of Bridal Gowns for Australian brides. This culminated in her winning the first Queensland Designer of the Year Award. Glenise still believes that drawing from life breathes LIFE into all her art – both figurative and landscape.
Life drawing has been the backbone of all her artistic endeavors resulting in many exhibitions in Australia and overseas. For 23 years, the ever changing light & colours on the waterlily covered lakes surrounding her studio at Noosa North Shore, and the tall white Melaleuca trees were a constant source of inspiration.
Her diverse genre combines her love of figurative & landscape always with explorations into colour & form.
Her time spent traveling & working in the Pacific Islands has resulted in her love of strong colours and her empathy with women & children. Her Pacific Series of paintings and sculptures captures a small window in time in fast changing cultures.
