Artist #21: Gloria Najecki

Currently working full time as an animal portraitist Gloria didn’t set out to be a portrait painter, exactly. Just as many things happen in life without our trying, the vocation sort
of found her. In 2001 Gloria started painting to raise funds for her beloved American bulldog's knee surgery. Fate stepped in and things took off from there. Gloria works primarily on a commission basis, creating paintings that speak to the heart of the relationship between man and beast. Using your photos for reference and your stories to guide her every painting becomes a statement of time and feelings, hope and love, and all things good…a tangible embodiment of the creature who inspired it. Your furry friend. You can see the artists work at or on her facebook page.
