Why balloon art you ask?
Because it’s fun sharing the magic of balloon sculptures with people. Glen truly loves watching people’s eyes widen as he creates amazing figures quickly out of thin air.  He loves having his Clients say "Wow!" when he delivers his masterful balloon projects.
He is a regular volunteer at charity events and believes in supporting the community and making the world a better place through the magic of balloon art.
