¨I was trained as a graphic designer back in South Mexico, though I have a strong interest in illustration and visual arts. After graduating I relocated in Australia and I haven't stop creating artwork since in order to find my own voice and style. I want to inspire people with pictures that will talk to them directly and take their breath away. I love that each person can find a different meaning to my images, though all of them through the same path I am trying to show them. At the moment I am working part-time as an illustrator/graphic designer for an australian educational game company, and I continue with my art: creating more artwork, experimenting new techniques, participating in contests and exhibitions.¨

"I worked with Gloria for twelve months and found her to be an extremely talented, and trust-worthy designer. During our time together I was her Creative Director and she handled senior-level design tasks for me. No matter the brief, or the time we had for the project I knew Gloria would be able to deliver innovative, fresh and exciting results. Gloria has exceptional technical skills across all relevant programs and is quick to learn new abilities if needed.
I have no hesitation recommending Gloria to future employers. Her talent and friendly personality will make an absolute asset to any team."
