Paintings by Glenn Adams


Curriculum Vitae

Began painting in 1958, at the age of thirty. Took art classes in Montreal from Patrick Landsley, Guy Viau, Moe Reinblatt, and others. Attended art workshop at Mount Allison University in 1960, given by L.P. Harris and Jacques de Tonnancour. Also in 1960, visited Alex Colville in his studio and began corresponding with him about my paintings.

Spent the 1962-63 academic year at Mount Allison, taking selected second and third year Fine Arts courses from Harris, Colville, and Helen Dow.

In 1966 bought a house with ten acres of land near Sackville. In May 1968 set up my studio in the house and spent a year painting full time. Moved to the house permanently in 1974.

My university degrees were in Science and Engineering and I have spent most of my life working as an engineer, first in the aircraft industry, then in the appliance industry. I have been painting full time since 1992.
