Born in the Pilbara in the 1970s, Gloria is an acrylic painter within a powerful matriarchal tradition that emerged in the Western Desert in the early 2000s. Her loose brushwork and pastel palettes have attracted critical attention for their highly affecting presence. Gloria is an emerging artist, learning to paint only in late 2015. Since then she has exhibited her work broadly across Western Australia, winning major prizes in the As We Are Art Awards 2017, the Hedland Art Awards 2017, and the prize for Best Overall Artwork in the Cossack Art Award 2019. Her first, self-titled solo exhibition took place at The Goods Shed in Perth in 2018.
