American Oil Painting Artist in Colorado offering
Traditional Landscapes & Classic Still Life
Hi, I'm Glory
Global travels of earlier days instilled in me a deep appreciation for old world beauty, art, and charm -- inspiring and informing all my work.
Painting began for me in childhood, for pleasure, gifts and my own decor. After a friend asked if she could purchase one of my paintings, then a professional artist friend asked if I'd paint her something, my painting career officially began.
I'm a Minnesota native from a large family and have a former life as a U.S. Air Force Public Affairs Officer -- stationed at RAF Mildenhall, UK, and Ellsworth AFB, SD. Now I'm a military spouse and mother of four adolescent children, with a few dogs, a cat, and some chickens.
At heart, I am an outdoor adventurer, feeling most alive when moving along out of doors. I'm a former distance runner -- Varsity Track and Cross Country at the US Air Force Academy, Class of 2002 -- turned mostly hiker by injury, enjoying the beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains. I'm grateful to paint the Creation surrounding me in Colorado, with occasional, relished jaunts to the Pacific coast.
