About Me

My name is Glenda Strong and I have a life long passion for art, design and education. I’ve developed ‘illustrations by glenda’ to bring these three passions together.

I believe that drawing and painting are meditative processes which are not about the outcome but rather about the doing. My experience stems from thirteen years as a senior lecturer in higher education in the UK and Australia in the fields of Architecture and Interior Design, and a further thirteen years as a practising Architect and Interior Designer in Namibia, California and Australia. I was drawn to the UK because of its art, history and architecture. I now live and practise in Sheffield, England, which I am delighted to call my permanent home. I started my career as an Architect because at the age of 18 all I wanted to do was draw. Now I am bringing this passion to you.
