Gilma Abramsky was born in Edinburg, Texas, and has lived her life as a resident of Edinburg in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. She knew when she was a child that her interest were art, dance, and music, which are portrayed throughout her artwork. She was first exposed to fine art when she accompanied her parents when they visited galleries and art museums throughout the United States. As an adult, Gilma has travelled throughout Europe and has seen numerous art masterpieces. Her current work is inspired by the art of Seurat and Aborigine art. She was also influenced by the works of Franz Kline.
Gilma has worked at galleries and studios in South Texas and has been an apprentice and artist assistant to artist Robert Vina. “I never tire of producing art work”, states Gilma. “My paintings are directly related to my emotions and the passions of the moment. My love for music is a great help and inspiration to me in the artistic process.” Gilma works primarily in acrylic paints on canvas and she considers her art work to be abstract and extremely expressionistic. “I hope you enjoy my art as much as I love to produce it. I strive to share my feelings and emotions in each piece I paint!”
