My name is Glenn austen, I am a local mixed media artist creating original artwork inspired by nature combining plaster, sand, resin and acrylic paint, applied in a variety of methods such as palette knife, spray can, brushes and air brushing.
I have always had a passion for being creative and love being able to create something beautiful from nothing. I have progressed my style to produce art with depth that can be appreciated from every angle.
Combining the four elements water, earth, air and fire as in the way nature creates the natural beauty formed over millions of years is ultimately my inspiration in utilising these elements when creating scenes of fire, water, air and earth. Using sand and plaster as the earth element. Water is represented by the flow and transparency using resin. The fire element is utilising a heat gun and blow torch for finishing techniques combined with air to create waves.
After finishing art at year 12 in the year 2000 I pursued art as a hobby while following another passion of mine becoming a qualifed clinical Myotherapist, having now worked in the industry for 20 years i have recently rekindled my love for art and have become enchanted by the process to the point now where i am ready to share it with everyone who can enjoy it.
Have been with gallery247 for 6 years, both free and now paid. Wonderful on line platform for artists which has made my work easy to find and i don't need to worry about setting up my own website; they even forwarded a message from a community college i volunteered for a few years ago, for an art tutor.

I have recently become a member of Gallery 247 as an artist, and am so impressed. Communication was quick and very personable. The website seems very user friendly. With the couple of questions I emailed I was looked after with a phone call and very kindly and professionally looked after. Highly recommend.
