Gloria is a muralist residing in Lake County, Ca.
She was commissioned by the county for their
re-development efforts of the North Shore region 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.
"I love the challenge of painting a large scaled mural. I enjoy the entire process - including the delicacies of negotiating my personal artistic preferences in order to bring my client's own vision to life. There are layers of cooperation and pure heart that go into successfully planning, and completing a mural - From the physical energy of climbing scaffolding to reach the highest corner of an exterior canvas, to hauling supplies, and occasionally stopping to chat with curious locals. It is a rewarding experience"
