Born in Kent in 1955, Glynn Williams has been painting professionally since the 1970's. Principally self-taught, he specialises in small oils of farm animals in gentle rural settings, often featuring cattle, sheep, horses, pigs, hens and geese.
After attending Wolverhampton College of Art in 1955, he worked at the British School in Rome until 1963 after winning the British Prix de Rome scholarship. In 1976, he became Head of the Wimbledon School of Art Sculpture Department, before moving to the Royal College of Art, London, where he became Head of Sculpture in 1990 and Head of the School of Fine Art from 1995 to 2010. He is a Fellow of Royal College of Art, the Royal Society of British Sculptors, and the RSA.
During the 1970s he made abstract sculptures, including crate-like objects in wood, but later in the decade he began carving stone figures.
