The Story of Glen Carter-Varney's Piano Art
Glen has written many compositions for piano and her published piano books have become very popular.
Glenʼs Piano Art publications came about through collaborations with Kathleen Tully, the owner/director of Wild Hearts Art Gallery in Buderim, Qld. Kathleen organised the selection of paintings, that are now featured on the covers of the books from her Buderim Art Gallery and liaised with the artists.
Lisa Winlaw, a talented graphic designer, was then approached to design the covers featuring the paintings. There was then an official book release organised in 2005 by Kathleen Tully, combined with an art exhibition of the paintings displayed on the book covers, as well as other art pieces created by the artists. The art exhibition was held over a two-week period, together with a series of piano recitals, additional to the main Piano Art book release.
