 Welcome to Glenn Bohn's art gallery

 

The stunning shapes and colours of wildlife and landscapes are Glenn Bohn’s primary source of artistic inspiration. 

 

Nature is his muse. 

 

Glenn has enjoyed drawing and painting since he was a child. A high school teacher encouraged Glenn to pursue his interest in visual art, but he chose to study social sciences at Simon Fraser Unversithy and journalism at Vancouver Community College. For three decades, Glenn worked at The Vancouver Sun as a reporter and feature writer. His favourite beat: environmental issues. 

 

Journalism gave Glenn countless opportunities to visit many outstanding natural areas, from the Galapagos Islands to Haida Gwaii, often with scientists and others as guides. His curiosity and love of independent travel took him to many countries, while freelancing or on vacation, to see everything from mountain gorillas in Rwanda to rarely visited traditional villages on the South Pacific Nation of Vanuatu.

 

When there wasn’t enough time or it wasn’t safe to sketch or paint, he tried to capture some of the grandeur, beauty and cultural diversity with a camera.

 

Glenn painted throughout his adult life, but has became far more productive in the last two decades.

 

In 2000, while vacationing in the Magdalen Islands in Atlantic Canada,  Glenn discovered a passion for painting outdoors, or plein air painting. A lifetime learner, he also enrolled in art courses and studio sessions offered by many excellent artists in the Metro Vancouver region.

 

Since then, Glenn has produced hundreds of oil, acrylic and water colour paintings.
