About Glenyse Thompson

Glenyse Thompson is best known for her twisting, flowing, textural hand-drawn abstract art made with water-medias, created with colorful backgrounds, others showing extreme starkness by creation on black paper with white ink.

Current themes are conversations shown in a visual manner, illustrating we are more similar than not. “My paintings and hand-drawings have everything to do with how we interact daily. Conversation is something we would miss if not happening, yet we rarely stop to think how much value we should place on it. We are nothing without each other.”
