A bit of blurb from Glenn..

I grew up in the leafy suburbs of Belfast, studied art to A level then dropped school to become a drummer in a Rock'n'Roll band. Preacher John was the band and we were on the Good Vibrations record label under the famous Terry Hooley (The Undertones released Teenage Kicks on Good Vibrations records) Took a job as a designer in the printing and packaging world when the music career wasn't paying the rent which led me to Dublin (chasing a girl). Got the girl and the 2 of us went off to Spain for 10 years. I ran a bar and played drums in a blues band. Eventually returning home to bring my 2 daughters up back in Ireland. Painting icons from the music and movie worlds on a large scale and counting Steve Garrigan (Kodaline) and Donal Gallagher (Rory's brother) among my collectors. Most notable piece is probably my tribute to Rory Gallagher which the family used as an album cover, The French Connection, out on the 21st April this year on vinyl and available on CD in September 2018.
Very Popular Contemporary Art Gallery in Dublin Ireland. Great selection of paintings and prints by well known Irish and International artists.
