About Glenn

Glenn Tunstull draws inspiration from the areas surrounding his home in Claverack, New York, in the Hudson Valley, the Berkshires, Catskills, Cape Cod and his world travels. These environments additionally inspire his unique abstract paintings as he captures the essence of each setting through a deft handling of watercolors and oil paints.

His Inspiration

Tunstull draws on his thirst for artistic challenges to create motivating landscapes, people enjoying leisure and cultural activities, and abstracts filled with movement.  His chosen settings and subjects are as striking as they are varied. His images extend from the pastoral lands of the Hudson Valley to the energetic and breathtaking colors of Bahia, Brazil, Australia, Indonesia, The UK, France, Italy and the Caribbean.
