We had the good fortune of connecting with Glenda Freeman and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Glenda, why did you pursue a creative career?
As a child I always knew that I wanted to be an artist; painting and creating feels so natural and easy, it is who I am, an Artist. When I paint I am in a world of my own. There are moments I get lost in the process that I feel as if time has stopped. Life is about finding happiness and doing what you love.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?

Within the past 3 years, I have been busy creating. Along with some new paintings I have designed a skincare line, G. FREEMAN ARTISTRY skincare and a clothing line, Willow Collection. I have so many ideas running around in my head lol. I love creating!
I never really studied artists or art history; all I know is that I love painting and I want to live off my work. Just within the past 15 years I have studied other artists and their work by visiting art galleries; two of my favorite artists are Pollock and Miro. My friend Terrence told me that I needed to study more, so that’s what I did, took some time off from painting and studied.
Being an artist is not an easy career choice, coming in I was so naive. I thought all I had to do was create some nice art and people will purchase; boy was I wrong lol! So far to date, I have sold 6 more paintings than Van Gogh when he was alive lol Along the way I have learned to have thick skin, not everyone is going to like or understand my work, and that is ok.
