Gloria has always done something creative, whether in needlework, mosaics, glass or paint. She has worked in acrylic, oil, pastel, mixed media and pen & ink.
Gloria loves the texture of oil paint and the vibrant hues of pastel. Subjects with sharp contrast and lots of color are what attract her most. She believes in constant learning and experimentation. In 2012 she became inspired by Zentangle® drawings with ink & marker to create abstract or subjective designs on all substrates.
Working around other artists for Gloria, has become an important part of her social life. She works best at her own pace and posts to her blog and social media sites. She has been judged into various local and national shows since 2008 and has received several honorable mentions. Her work has sold to patrons in Illinois, California, Florida, Texas, Montana, Indiana, Ohio and Germany.
She has been a member of The Oil Painters of America, The Chicago Pastel Painters, Contemporary Fine Art International, The College of Lake County Foundation, The Daily Paintworks, The Lake County Art League, The Arlington Heights Art league, The Artist Association of Elk Grove Village, BCAC and NAAC.
