Glenn Drewitt

Glenn Drewitt is an untrained artist. He has been making paintings since he was a child. Glenn enjoyed doing cartoons at school, on paper with a pen or pencil. He didn’t really get stuck into painting until about four years ago when he had the opportunity to get some paint and canvas and paint brushes.

Glenn mostly works from home and usually doesn’t spend too much time on the paintings. Recently he and two other artists held an exhibition Contrasting Colours at Axis Gallery, Parks Community Centre.

Glenn particularly likes doing portraits of famous personalities. He generally works with oil and acrylic on canvas, though he has also used other mediums including oil pastels, charcoal and pencil.
