The Artist Says:

"fleeting moments, fleeting light, creates beauty."     
      Gloria is inspired by the beauty she finds along the way as she explores the world. The beauty in the common thing, that when you look closely enough and the light falls just right you find something amazing.  When conditions are right, the fleeting light can create a jewel like impression of something very precious.  She is preoccupied with color and form through light, and hopes to place the viewer in that moment.     Gloria's paintings reflect scenes from her travels abroad, a flower in the dramatic morning light from the front porch, or the wonderful mischievous smile of a child.  Gloria expresses herself through art and hopes those who see her work will enjoy each unique piece as much as she loved creating it.


     Art became a part of Gloria's life in 2000, after leaving the IT profession as a System Analyst. The journey began with jewelry, metalsmithing and welding classes. In 2005 a need to learn how to draw led to painting courses. This is when Gloria found her obsession, oil painting. She became fascinated with the transparent, brilliant luminous quality of an "Old World Style" of painting, called Technique Mixte.  Studying painting has allowed Gloria to refine her technical skills and has given her the opportunity to work with talented supportive teachers and fellow artists who share their amazing creative energy. 

     Residing in Lockport, Illinois with her husband Jeff, Gloria is always dreaming of creating the next beautiful painting. Spending many hours in the studio drawing, painting, and most recently exploring photography, gives her great pleasure. Therefore, Gloria's hope is that the profound joy she finds in creating art is reflected in each piece.
