Author Biography

Glyn Macey can often be found roaming the harbors, moorlands and coast of his native Cornwall, sketchbook in hand, recording the details of daily life and history. Such sketches are in turn used as the basis for his studio paintings.
Using acrylic, mixed media and an array of mark-making techniques he endeavors to capture the underlying essence of the landscape, and the people who live in it.

Glyn uses acrylics, pencil and collage to gain the spontaneity of his work and the ‘happy accidents’ that he loves. He believes that the unexpected unity of color and texture in mixed media can often create the most exciting results.
