JUROR: Gladys Roldan de Moras The product of a long line of artists and artisans, Gladys was born in 1965 in Monterrey, Mexico. She began to enjoy Art at a very young age and took a circuitous route to become a fine artist we know today. In 1984 she moved to Austin where she received her degree from the University of Texas.

Her passion for art is reflected in her colorful work. Each one of her paintings captures the essence of the moment; often there is a hidden message the artist wants to convey. Strong colors, soft edges, hard edges, light and shadow are all captured by the artist’s hand. Because of her talent she is rapidly being recognized as an important emerging artist.
