For over forty years, Glen’s artwork has been women centric and inspired by the Sacred Feminine. Her work depicts women in their strength as well as in their sensuality – women as life-givers who are grounded yet connected to the spiritual realm. Her work celebrates a nature-based symbolism honoring Gaia, Mother Earth. For many years Glen has traveled around the world visiting ancient sacred sites. Archetypal symbols carved on stone, painted on cave walls and ceramics have inspired her work. This more recent figurative series created over a five-year period combines those symbols with the power of the female. Her work includes charcoal drawings, paintings and monotype prints with the theme of HerStory – a revisionist history relating to matriarchal cultures and Maiden, Mother, Crone – the three phases of a woman’s life – all painted with a definite feminist agenda.
