Born in 1947 in Portland, Maine, Glenn Renell was educated at Rhode Island School of Design, Fort Wright College, and received his MFA in Painting from the University of Massachusetts in 1978. He was
a professor of painting, drawing, and design at Maine College of Art for 20 years, resigning in 2001 to
paint full time. Glenn now resides in Pearce, Arizona.
A landscape painter, Glenn has cultivated a profound understanding of the relationship between a
painter, a place, and a viewer. His perceptive observation of the subtleties of light and the relationships
of sky, land, and horizon are beautifully rendered in his paintings.
