Glenn Quist lives and works full time as an artist in Elk River, Minnesota which is a small community on the Mississippi River on the fringe of the Minneapolis and Saint Paul metropolitan area. His subjects vary considerably but they mostly are derived from memory and imagination with a strong emphasis on color and composition. He considers his paintings to be "somewhere between dreams and reality." Opposed to telling stories directly, he prefers to make and present his work and leave the interpretation to whomever might be interested enough to have an opinion.
