After gaining a BA in English Literature & Language at the University of Oxford, Gloria began touring in theatre productions for different audiences and age groups throughout the UK. Her work in education, developing and delivering arts workshops & projects for children and teens of all backgrounds and abilities has taken her around the world.
Three years ago, Gloria founded Glow Visual and Performing Arts an organisation that works with other cultural and educational organisations to deliver community projects, workshops and performances that merge traditional storytelling with digital media. Glow have had the pleasure of being part of The Big Draw for two years running and this year were delighted to be performing at Coventry’s fantastic Shoot Festival. Children attending our animation workshops have also recently won the Into Film animation challenge.
Gloria currently lectures students on the BA Illustration & Animation at Coventry University and is studying for an MA at Royal Holloway University. Her research focuses on Theatre and Performance in domestic settings and in particular, on what artists and arts venues can learn from this practice.
Gloria gets to share her love of creativity with her two amazing sons aged 1 and 4.
Gloria worked with Rachael to create the narrative to Happenchance, Stan and the Spitfire and The Box! in the 2014 original creation of the works.
