Her works are in a variety of mediums, including pencil, acrylics, and oil pastels and
in clay. While Gloria prefers her and her Art
not to be labeled; her pieces are described as “whimsical and amusing abstracts.” Native of California, "born an artist," she has been creative since kindergarten, which has carried on, throughout her life. Her work is created through discovery of her path, and the majority of her creations have been inspired truly by the children as well as the adults throughout her life. She has five wonderful children, and last count, 12 beautiful grandchildren.
Gloria was an assistant art teacher in California, and then eventually taught in Alabama at the Eastern Shore Art Academy for over 10 years. She taught Pottery
at the Rotary Boys and Girls Club in Fairhope , Al for over 14 years, as well as a substitute Art Teacher for Bayside Academy in Daphne, AL. Around the time she revisited her pottery skills; Gloria’s creativity on canvas transformed to what is
labeled as abstract. While teaching; Gloria continued to create Art as well as being
an active member of the GCCG (Gulf Coast Clay Guild), Bell Arts and involvement
in numerous art shows and events across the Gulf Coast.
Gloria moved to the Seattle area in September 2012 and has volunteered her teaching skills in Pottery to Unity Church in Lynnwood, WA as well as teaching Pottery and Painting to Mari’s Place a Non Profit in Everett, WA.
While creating Gloria’s art takes her down paths before knowing their existence
and hopes at least one person will see in her art their own complexity within as well.
