Gloria began developing her artistic abilities as a child and went on to various Gifted and Talented art programs and classes - earning multiple scholarships in her college years. She began painting with arcrylics and moved on to explore other mediums such as conte, charcoal, oil painting, watercolor, mixed media and mural work. She enjoys the process of creating and hopes to one day compile enough artwork to display in international art museums along with her favorite artists.
