Gladys Roldan-de-Moras

Born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, Gladys Roldan-de-Moras is often known for her paintings, which spotlight Spanish culture, including courageous, gallant Mexican escaramuzas daringly riding horses sidesaddle in a rodeo-style festival, romantic Flamenco senoritas clad in exuberant, euphoric 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 and unmistakable passion for Spanish culture. “I try to paint the beauty that surrounds me,” says Gladys of her work. “I am profoundly inspired by turn-of-the-century Spanish painters.”
