Gloria Kingma PAC

Gloria Kingma - Bio


Gloria is a realisitic artist greatly influenced by the beauty of God's creation. Her objective is to capture, if only for a moment, the flow of colour or the dance of light as they act and react on the beauty of nature around us.

Born in Welland Ontario, Gloria's interest started at an early age. This interest has developed over the years into a passion giving her enjoyment that she now shares with her students.

Having taught watercolour, acrylic and pastel for over fifteen years, has in turn expanded her growth as an artist. Primarily self taught, she works equally in in all mediums building layer upon layer of transparent colour to create the beauty and depth of her work. Gloria is a certified member of the Pastel Artists Association of Canada.
