Glenda Pitt is an emerging, Australian artist.
Influences came from early years of overseas travels, living in various places on the eastern side of Australia, principally Queensland and now her current place of residence being Melbourne's Mornington Peninsular. Like many artists she is also influenced by this ever changing world; the speed of everything, dramatic changes of our climate on our environments, the effect on human progress, expansion, movement of people and lifestyles.
Impressed by both Australian and European Masters e.g. Albert Namatjira, Arthur Streeton, Norman Lindsay, Lloyd Rees, Michelangelo, Rembrant, Beardsly and Dali from old, to her contemporaries like Ben Quilty, Linda Robinson and Roger Dean and Banksy. All very different in styles and often subject matter, but an indication of her desire to broaden her own style.
Glenda paints with acrylics, often mixing other mediums of water colour, gouache, charcoal, pastels and crayons.
"Overall, painting and use of ones imagination to me, is just simple enjoyment to express the inner soul through visual creativity".

"Creativity takes Courage"
"Creativity is not (just) a talent, it's a way of operating" according to John Cleese:)
