Heather Glenny: Biography

Heather has been interested in drawing and painting since early childhood but finally joined some adult education evening classes around 1978 to gain experience and tuition in flower painting. She also had lessons privately with a well-known artist in the Cranleigh area. Heather gained further knowledge and skills by completing a John Blockley landscape watercolour course during the1980’s.

Around this time she successfully sold many of her paintings locally, but during the next ten years Heather had tough family and work commitments, so art was put ‘on hold’ although she was able to complete a course for teaching adults and subsequently taught beginners art classes for a few years.

Since retiring to Sussex in 2004, she has been developing her art by attending additional art classes and experimenting with different media. In the last decade she has completed both botanical and wildlife classes and landscape workshops tutored by well known professional artists.

The Horsham Museum offered Heather a unique opportunity to write and illustrate her own book which she completed in 2012. Heather’s book ‘A Celebration of Flowers’ is available from the Horsham Museum.

Heather is a member of the Association of Sussex Artists, The Horsham Artists Open Studios (HAOS), the Horsham Painting Group (HPG), and a U3A Art Group. In 2014 Nymans Gardens at Handcross selected one of her paintings for their three-month exhibition. The commissioned painting of the Chesworth Wetland was well received locally and now hangs in their Visitor Centre.
