A mature student, Glenda Meldrum graduated in 2012 with a degree in Fine Art from the University of Sunderland.
Although primarily a painter, she considers herself to be a mixed media artist.
Her work is focused mainly around family and memory.
I wanted to contribute to the project purely because I see myself as a ‘born & bred mackem’. Having grown up in the latter half of the 20th century I am very aware of just how much Sunderland has changed within my lifetime.
My book represents the first 18 years of my life, from childhood to adulthood.
