Colour In Your Life Glenise Clelland

Featured artist Glenise Clelland appeared on Colour In Your Life Season Six (6). Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.

Glenise Clelland is a contemporary Australian artist with over 30 years of exhibiting at major art galleries and selling paintings in Australia and overseas. Glenise studied Fashion Design at The Brisbane College of Art, now the Queensland University of Technology. She is best known for landscape paintings, figurative paintings and expressive nude drawings and also paintings of the South Pacific Islands & Papua New Guinea.

Glenise now works from her studio at Noosa North Shore, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. Her vibrant and diverse oil paintings, acrylics and mixed media express her passionate love of strong colour, texture and dynamic forms.

The studio’s proximity to the Noosa River and the wetland areas next to the Cooloola National Park and the amazing birdlife at Noosa North Shore are a constant source of inspiration. Glenise’s art reflects her love of Nature. Glenise loves working with emotive colours that stimulate and excite the senses and leave room for the spectators’ interpretation.

Drawing from a live model – life drawing – has been the backbone of all her artistic endeavours since her early days studying Fashion Design. For Glenise, drawing trains the mind and eyes to process what is seen & translate it, with feeling, onto 2 and 3-dimensional surfaces.

Glenise has won numerous prizes, including the Ian Fairweather Memorial Prize & Sunshine Coast Drawing Prize. She has had 15 solo exhibitions. Her paintings have been selected for prestigious exhibitions like Tattersalls Landscape Prize (4 times) and many Regional Galleries such as Pine Rivers Award, Celebrate Queensland Award, Flying Arts Award, Stanthorpe Award and APQ selected exhibitions at Waterfront Place. Her painting from the Aboriginal University of Australia Collaboration is now one of the panels in the Noosa Hospital Mural. Three of her paintings were selected for the inaugural Florence Biennale Exhibition in Italy.
