Glenda Hennig

Glenda is a Brisbane based printmaker, papermaker and maker of artist’s books. She has many years of art teaching experience, both in schools and for adults. Her art practice usually involves the places where we set up home; houses, gardens, or the natural world outside our back doors. She likes to explore lagoons and creeks and the trees, plants and creatures there, weeds and bugs included, making drawings, prints and paper that reflect her interest in what grows and lives in wilder urban spaces.
