Glenyse is an abstract visual artist. Favorite mediums include lightfast inks, acrylics and white or gold pen on panels or paper. Inspiration comes from day-to-day interaction with people, conversations, Florida's lively weather, travel and everyday experiences. It all shows up in the colors and movement used to visually illustrate how she enjoys life.

Born in Chicago, Illinois, she now resides in St. Petersburg, Florida.
