Glyn Macey was born in Newlyn, Cornwall, in 1969. He completed his HND in
Graphic Design at Falmouth School of Art in 1991.
Since leaving college he has lived in Penzance, Cornwall, and his work has
developed in response to the unique environment of West Cornwall.
He also worked as a successful designer until 1998 when he ‘retired’ from
designing in order to devote his time solely to painting.
In 1997 he was awarded ‘Album Cover of The Year’ from CRS. In 1999 Glyn was featured on Channel4’s ‘Collectors Lot’ as a recommended young painter.
Glyn Macey’s paintings can be seen in many collections worldwide and his
design work is found in many major high street retailers.
Using mixed media and an array of mark-making techniques, he endeavors to capture the underlying essence of the landscape. Glyn’s work creates a
sometimes unexpected unison of colour and texture in mixed media with
exciting and vibrant results.
