Meet G - Artist of the Sea
Born and raised in San Diego, California, Glenn's love for the sea and art has always been a part of his life. From a very early age, he developed a love for art and by the age of twelve, he began to do pencil drawings. His senior year in high school he was selected as high school NC Artist of the Year and had two pencil works hang in the NC State Capitol for a year. Attending a local community college, Glenn studied graphic design and went on to work with a large publishing company in Charlotte, NC. Glenn Lamp Studios opened in 2000 providing commission art to the area's top designers, business owners, and high-end home market. In 2011 Glenn went on his first missions trip to Guatemala and it was on that trip Glenn's heart posture turned back towards his first love -- God. Day Five Art was birthed during this time of deep trust, praying and painting in the quiet presence of God. In 2015 he and his wife sold nearly everything and made another big faith move to open their first gallery -- Day Five Art Gallery. Today, Glenn is a full-time artist in Emerald Isle, NC, and soul grateful that God called him out on the deep waters of faith to paint sealife in colors of glory. He calls it "Gospel Art with God colors" -- providing a way for him to share the good news through the stories of each piece. "The work of my own hands is an admiration of the Master’s hands and the work he completed on the fifth day." says artist Glenn Lamp. "It's what we are all created to do --- worship --- with whatever gift God has given to us."
Glenn's paintings consist of fauvism work. Influenced by sea life, nature, new color combinations and more importantly his spiritual walk, all of these elements are in each piece.
