About Gleaux Art and Design

Welcome to Gleaux (pronounced “glow”), an Art + Design "makery" in sunny San Diego where life slows down just long enough to attempt to make visual sense (or nonsense) of it. Erika, master-maker, likes to keep a window open so that the sea breeze, beauty, inspiration and magic can drift in on a whim.
