He has a Master's degree in Education (with a Certificate in Waldorf Education) from Antioch New England Graduate School, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Communication from Layton School of Art and Design with academic accreditation from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI.
Proficient in Sketchbook Pro as well as all the traditional media; oils, pastels, watercolors, drawing, printing, and sculpture, his work ranges from paintings done from imagination to portraits, landscapes, and still life done with an impressionist palette, with color appropriate to the light conditions.

His paintings have been exhibited in galleries and non-profit spaces in New York City, Washington, D.C., Virginia, Puerto Rico, Chicago, Titusville FL, and throughout New Jersey. He is a past President of the Artist League of Central New Jersey, a founding member of the Visual Arts League of New Jersey, and has been featured in the Art Goes Public program of Middlesex County, where he demonstrated oil painting techniques in public libraries for many years.
He studied oil painting and impressionist color with: Henry Hensche, Cedric Egeli at the Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown MA, Richard V. Goetz both privately in Oklahoma City and at The Art Students League of New York, Richard Antholz at the National Academy in New York City, portrait sculpture at the New York Academy of Art, drawing with William B. Weltman privately in New York City, and Ecorche with David Jameison at Vitruvian Studios in Chicago.
I have been a wood carver and wood burner (pyrographer) for 20 years, with emphasis on burning (pyrography) for the last 8 years. I have exhibited and sold works at numerous carving club shows and contests, juried art shows and arts & crafts shows. I have won first place ribbons and other prizes. I am a member of the National Wood Carvers Association, The Great Outdoors Carving Club, Space Coast Wood Carving Club, and the North Brevard Art League. I teach novice and intermediate wood burning (pyrography) and wood carving at both carving clubs.
Not all artists, carvers or burners create scenes using a burner, so it is a lot of fun to introduce a new media to people!
"I define art as a language of life's vibrance: a transformation of human emotion into imagery. An invitation for the viewer to pause and reflect, and to share an experience."
Gloria's passion is painting with watercolor -- dealing with the challenge the medium presents, and the requirement to work with the medium, not to control it. Her art addresses a wide range of subjects, from Florida flora and fauna to urban cityscapes and their diverse populations. These works can be viewed on her website: www.gloriabrubaker.com.
Gloria is an active member of the North Brevard Art League, the Brevard Watercolor Society, the Florida Watercolor Society, and the Eastern Upper Peninsula Arts Council.
I have been making art as long as I can remember. I am visually oriented and drawn to line and color. After earning degrees in art from UCF (Go Knights!) and UGA (Go Dawgs!) I managed to work as an artist in some capacity as often as possible, including graphic design, screen printing, indoor galleries and outdoor shows, and teaching youth and adults. These days I have the freedom to create what I love. I work primarily in acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media, including my spirit dolls which have proven to be inspirational and therapeutic for myself and others.
