Gloria is a muralist residing in Lake County, CA. She started her artistic career as a watercolor studio director for a hand painted greeting card company called Jane Stone Cards out of Silverton, OR in 1998. She went on to work as head illustrator for the company until 2007.
After moving to Lake County California,
she began painting murals when being commissioned by the Lake County Re-development Team for their beautification efforts along the highway 20 corridor in 2008. Her most recent murals in Lake County can be found on the main corridor through Lakeport, and Cache Creek Vineyards Tasting room.
Her murals also adorn walls in several restaurants and wineries including the interior of her own shop, Catfish Coffeehouse. However, her paintings extend beyond Lake County to other parts of the Bay Area, including Marin, Napa, Mendocino, and Humbolt County.
