Glenn Hoyle was born in Lancashire, England in 1951 and from an early age he loved to draw and paint. At The age of 15, following advice from his art teacher, Glenn enrolled as a student for three years at the Rochdale College of Art.

After working as a commercial artist for an advertising agency , he felt it was time to broaden his horizons and travelled extensively throughout Europe, North Africa, The Middle East and visited Australia in 1974. He returned to live permanently in Melbourne in 1981.

It was here that he considered painting full time. He Joined the Peninsula Art Society, entered Art Shows and exhibited in local galleries. His first exhibition was sold out in the first two weeks. This was all very exciting but he knew that relying soly on painting sales wasn't going to be that easy, so in 1989 Glenn started to conduct art classes and workshops from his studio. This proved to be very popular and still is today. He now teaches at the Peninsula Art Society and the Mordialloc Mentone Art Group.

Working in oils, acrylic, watercolour and pastels, Glenn strives to capture the effect of light on this treasured land and coastline. His work has won many awards and the hearts of many buyers and are represented in private collections throughout Australia and overseas.
