Gloria Stuart (1910 - 2010) was an actress, visual artist, letterpress printer, and a co-founder of the Screen Actors Guild. She starred in numerous films across the horror, musical, and comedy genres between 1932 and 1940, at which point she shifted the focus of her career toward art and experimented with decoupage, painting, silk screening, and bonsai growing for the next thirty years. Stuart met Ward Ritchie in 1983 and was inspired to pursue fine printing and bookmaking, eventually printing her own books on a Vandercook S15 and releasing them under the imprint Imprenta Glorias. Along with earning widespread acclaim for her artist’s books, Stuart won a Screen Actors Guild Award for her role in James Cameron’s Titanic (1997). She was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award for the same role.
