G L O R I A /glôr'ē-ə/ 1. A Latin word meaning glory; a source of honor, admiration, and distinguished splendor.
A Latin name that translates to glory and distinguished splendor, has perhaps turned into a chant that has cast a spell on a seemingly ordinary stack of color pencils. Miami native, Latin for Glory, is an independent artist that is most commonly known for the realistic works of art that she creates using color pencils on paper. Her main body of work focuses around the Bull – an animal that symbolizes power, raw energy, and manifestation since prehistoric times. Glory aims to harness the significance and importance of the Bull and inspire others through her art. Her professional background in architecture and interior design has a strong influence on her work. Every piece is developed with a strong concept, is executed with preciseness, and relies heavily on hand craftsmanship. Her art takes between 80 to 200 hours to create - a process that puts perseverance and determination to work.
In addition to her fine art, Latin for Glory has performed Live Art at private events for clients including H&M, Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s,Jo Malone, and Chevrolet. She has also participated in local group shows in galleries such as Arthood 56 (2018), Galeria Adelmo (2017), Wirtz Gallery in the First National Bank of South Miami, N’Namdi Gallery for the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series (2017), and Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach (2018).
Latin for Glory is currently working on developing the new collection Elementa, which explores six powerful elements: fire, light, water, earth, metal, and air. The first series of the collection, Seven Fires is will be on display in at two-week solo exhibition the Miami Design District, May 3rd through May 19th.
