1963-

 

 

 

“Always proud of my Colombian and Mexican heritage, my passion for art is reflected in colorful paintings showcasing Latin and South Central Texan culture. I focus on capturing the essence of light, movement, and the natural surroundings unique to the subject matter I am depicting. Often my work is inspired by my love of music and favorite operas, such as Puccini’s La Boheme. Music lifts my soul.”

 

Born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, Gladys Roldan-de-Moras is often known for her paintings, which spotlight Spanish culture, including corageous, gallant Mexican escaramuzas daringly riding horses sidesaddle in a rodeo-style festival, romantic Flamenco senoritas clad in exuberant Andalusian dresses, and old-fashioned, delicate damsels in intimate, exquisite poses. After living in San Antonio for over 25 years, she finds great inspiration in representing her love of Spanish culture. “I try to paint the beauty around me,” says Gladys of her work, “I am inspired by turn-of-the-century Spanish painters.” Her talent has landed her work in many private and public permanent collections, at the national and international levels. Gladys’ striking, romantic art has been cited in several publications such as Southwest Art Magazine, American Western Art Collector, Western Art and Architecture, Architectural Digest European Edition, San Antonio Express-News, Western American Literature, Art Business News, El Dictamen de Veracruz, and La Voz Latina, to name a few
