Gloria Ann Shows is a Filipino-American artist whose work is largely influenced by her formative years in Japan, England, and the United States. She is interested in how geographical and historical narratives relate to her personal multicultural and multiethnic experience and expression. Through processes in printmaking, fiber art, and illustration, she addresses fated conditions of instability, change, and adaptation. She holds a BFA in Printmaking from the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, OK, and an MFA from the Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. She has exhibited nationwide in art book fairs, art exhibitions, and print exchanges, and currently calls Columbus, Ohio home.
