Glenn Badman — Artist

A Professional Artist for 25 years I have built relationships with Galleries, Dealers, and Arts Consultants to showcase and establish my art.

I attempt to 'capturethe ephemeral' as I make ink sketches that later evolve into oil paintings celebrating the magnetism of light and colour.

Past projects include the Palace of Westminster, London Palladium, Sadlers Wells Theatre and Ronnie Scotts Jazz club and I am currently working with the and to support the National Trust on a body of coastal paintings.
