Artist Statement

Gloria believes art is a method to communicate with my audience in the most direct and immediate way. She is a tactile artist. She creates with traditional mediums, but will shake them free of their conventional milieu to create something unexpected. In the case of the medium of stained glass, many early windows obscured natural light because the methods to produce sheets of glass were primitive, and glass was restricted to small pieces held by heavy pieces of lead, called caning. Her work, utilizing modern techniques, allows the medium of colored glass to appear lighter, break boundaries and transform spaces.

When creating in glass Gloria is continually aware of the immediate and emotional impact on the viewer. By thinking of how light and color will encompass the entire space which houses the glass, she invites the viewer to become a participant, rather than simply stand back and see the piece from one point of view. By using abstract rather than allegorical or symbolic shapes, she encourages people to find their own particular meaning in her work.

As a child she was learning challenged. Drawing and painting was a fluid and seamless way to express herself and feel connected with those around her. A desire to show others how art might help them engage in their community led Gloria to become an Art Therapist as well as an Art Educator.

As an Art Therapist Gloria utilizes visual arts with people who are unable to express themselves through the conventional mediums of speech and language. She views her work as a facilitator, creating safe spaces for people to connect with themselves and thereby reconnect to their community.
