Glenda Allen Green (born in 1945) [1] is an American artist, academic and author. Her experiences in painting a portrait of Jesus Christ in 1992 led her to write a book of her inner conversations with Jesus.

Career[edit]

She graduated magna cum laude with honors in painting from Texas Christian University (TCU) in 1967. She obtained an M.A. in art history from Tulane University in 1970. There she taught art history and was curator of collections for the Newcomb College art department. Also during this period (1968–69) she worked at Fort Worth's Kimbell Art Museum as research assistant to the institution's director. She began to seriously paint as an artist in 1971. She later taught at the University of Oklahoma, and had a retrospective show there in 1986.[2] In 1998 she had a show at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art.[3]

It was during her creation of a commissioned portrait of Christ, "The Lamb and The Lion", in 1992[4] that she turned to spiritual writing.

Her biography states that she had paintings on exhibition in the United States at the Smithsonian Institution, Williams College Museum of Art and the Museum of the City of New York.[citation needed] She is now a public speaker on new age spirituality and lives in Arizona.[5]
