Glynnis Carter


Originally from Walthamstow in North East London, Glynnis lived, studied and worked in the North East from 1967 - 2000.

In 2000 she moved to Alston in the North Pennines. Whilst continuing to work as a teacher she studied part time at Newcastle College, Northumbria University and Sunderland University. In 2004, having gained a BA(Hons) in Fine Art, she gave up teaching and began to paint full time.

"Authenticity in landscape art is a transcription not of 'nature' but of subjective responses which often involve a process of sustained direct contact with the chosen site ....."
