She is a multimedia artist that mainly works in painting, weaving, mixed media, printmaking, and sign making. The theme of imitating nature through cycles of destruction and reconstruction are intrinsic elements in Gloria’s process. Her interests in decolonization and non-western cultural aesthetics drives Gloria to gather research and inspiration from Filipin@, Mexican, and Indigenous cultures; this is her way of connecting with and reclaiming her personal, cultural identity as a Xicana-Pinay Womyn. Her work exudes a colorful, feminine effervescence that is both energizing, calming, stark, yet inviting. She is dedicated to her art practices as a means of spiritual survival and art for healing.
