Gladys Roldan-de-Moras
Born 1963, in Monterrey, Mexico; lives in San Antonio, Texas

BORN AND RAISED in Monterrey, Mexico, Gladys Roldan-de-Moras’s paintings often spotlight Spanish culture, including courageous, gallant Mexican escaramuza girls daringly riding horses sidesaddle in a rodeo-style festival; romantic Flamenco señoritas clad in exuberant Andalusian dresses; and elegant, delicate damsels in intimate, exquisite poses. After living in San Antonio for almost 30 years, she finds great inspiration in representing her love of Spanish culture.

“I try to paint the beauty around me,” says Roldan-de-Moras of her work. “I am inspired by turn-of-the-century Spanish painters. My passion for art is reflected in colorful paintings showcasing Hispanic culture and traditions.” Her talent has landed her work in many private and public permanent collections at the national and international levels.
