Glenn has made the Region of Waterloo his home since 1989. He first came here to study Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo and later continued his studies through field work abroad in Scotland, New Zealand, England, France and the United States. As a founding member of Waterloo Region’s Arts Hub, Button Factory Arts, Glenn has been actively exhibiting, teaching and promoting art with a passion for over 20 years. As the Artist in Residence at Homer Watson House and Gallery for 2 years consecutively, from 2000-2002 Glenn developed his teaching skills. Eventually he went on to teach a variety of Painting and Sculpture classes for Conestoga College, Kitchener Campus and at the Tom Thompson Arts Festival in South River as well, and has maintained excellent relations with Homer Watson House and Gallery as he is currently one of their Associate Artists.
Concrete structures are the main theme of Glenn’s current work, exhibiting in a variety of Galleries throughout Ontario, including Marten Arts Gallery in Bayfield, ON. Glenn has broadened his customer base by showing sketches and paintings of his sculptures at several Art Galleries, Art Walks and Festivals throughout the Region of Waterloo and all across Canada. Glenn can even boast about sales of his work over the past 6 years, to customers as far away as Spain, Columbia, China and Japan. Similar styles of these concrete sculptures are also available via his website. Glenn continues with high acclaim to expand upon these types of work as he is successfully showing and selling his art through the involvement in local Art Walks, Arts Festivals, Solo and Group Art Shows and is now moving into the realm of Public Art Installations.

Entirely self-taught in the art of bead-stitching, Sharl has discovered a passion for seed beads, for experimenting with new stitches and designs, for constructing ever larger art objects as well as creating intricate jewellery.
