Join Kat and Glenyse Thompson on this empowering chat about how the artist followed her intuition and became a painter. 

In this episode, we discuss: 

  • How Glenyse took a chance on herself and applied to her first juried exhibition 
  • The power of networking and making the most of opportunities
  • The artist's intuitive approach to painting
  • Getting featured by Martha Stewart

Glenyse is an abstract visual artist. Favorite mediums include lightfast inks, acrylics, and white or gold pen on panels or paper. Inspiration comes from day-to-day interaction with people, conversations, Florida's lively weather, travel, and everyday experiences. It all shows up in the colors and movement used to visually illustrate how she enjoys life.

Born in Chicago, Illinois, she now resides in St. Petersburg, Florida.
